    I was at a shop today... testing my newly fixed Fender on some REAL amps.. there was a guy next to me jamming out and we kinda started doing a duet on bass lol.. anyway we shared some things that we play at music stores.. or at home.. You know those basslines you play when testing out a new bass? short, most of them are quite fast, but sound great, and really make the bass work for her money ;)
    Post some up. In my Opinion they are the most fun to play :hyper: :bassist:

    NO! NO! NO!

    Do not, Do not, Do not refer to that as a Tool song. It's THE Led Zeppelin song for me, and IMO it's a song that should never be covered by anyone. I think Tool's version is weak in comparison to the orignal.
