Revenge Of The Nerds

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Bluez Dawg, Jan 21, 2006.


  1. The other night I was watchign the ron or Revenge of the nerds, and I noticed the whole movie had a lot of funk bass-lines, and I could tell the hint of the Major and Minor blues scale.


    Also guys when you listen to you're fav song? do you find your self tapping along with the beat?, and trying to figure what notes they are using?, and to be actully hear when the rythum kicks in? Lately I've been doing that lots.

    Oh man... I just watched that movie the other night, too! I was a little disappointed that during the Skit Festival there was no bass player... but I agree that during the movie I did notice a lot of funk bass. I didn't pay attention, but wasnt most of synth? I mean... for the most part if youre looking for an 80's-like funky synth bass sound, the (unfortunately) best route to go is just to use a synth. Thats how Seinfeld is done, right?
     
  3. Seinfeild doen on a keyboard synth, but dude if you look closly at the skit again, You will see a white 4 string bass, it looks like an epiphone T-bird or goth, And gilbert and luis looks like they where holding the amp heads lol.

    Do you know who was playing the bass? ... I bet he was the cool nerd...
     
  5. I'm not sure but it actully looked like the bassist from "Devo", but then again Iam not sure who he was, because i he not shown threw out the movie, except in that skit only.

    During the pep-rally at the end, when the Father fraternaty shows up with all the black men, they are playing a serious funk groove. It's bass and drums, with just a hint of some wah type guitar in there.

    Amazing bass line during that part, check it out. Deep funk groove. In fact if you listen closely you'll notice it's actually a FRETLESS. You can hear him sliding into and out of the maj/min 3rds and stuff.
     
  7. Oh man...now I gotta go buy Revenge of the Nerds just to hear these basslines !

    Quotes of the movie both belong to Booger...

    1) "what the f@#$ are robster craws?"

    and

    2) Alpha Beta - "What are you looking at Nerd ?"
    Booger - " I thought I was looking at my mom's old douche' bag, but that's back in Ohio"

    Pure Genius !
