    I have just learnt Black Night by Deep Purple, and I want to know some other songs that are old like that, and have cool bass lines to them.

    Also, since I just got a 5 String (I'll post pics etc when I get them developed) I would like to know some "intermediate" to beginner stuff to incorporate the Low b Into songs. I know Last Resort (Papa Roach), and thats it. Any songs are much appreciated guys.

    THANKS!

    Try 10.000 Maniacs.

    The album after "Blind Man's Zoo" was the first one their bassist, Steve Gustafson, recorded with a 5, so it would be a good place to start.
