    Hello , id just like suggestions of slowish bass parts like death or glory and charlie dont surf by the clash and other things like that...Not the same style or anything just that type of speed and constant changing notes. I think those would really help peoples ear. So please help out, thanks to those who do.

    46 and 2 by Tool is pretty slow, and sounds very cool. One of my favorite bass intros.

    It's cool man, it happens. :cool:


    Hmmm... well, I hate the band but "Rearranged" by LimP BiZkit has an awesome bassline you might wanna figure out.

    Longview by Greenday is a good one.



    What kind of music do you like?

    I'm drawing a blank right now, I'm going to bed pretty soon, but I'm sure there are some great basslines within the bands you like that you can figure out. And it all depends exactly how complicated you want. 46&2 is a good one. Pretty simple, but real cool.

    Not really answering your question, but try and get hold of 'Ultimate ear training' by Gary Willis, after using that a fair deal you'll improve your ear-skills (such a phrase?) way more than by earing (again, such a phrase?) other people bass parts.

    Basicallym, it ges you to distinguish intervals and such, pretty useful!

    Anyway, to answer your question, phobofile by cryptopsy, that has a 'slow' bass intro thats easy to play (straight after the piano intro).

    I Saw Your Mommy by Suicidal Tendencies has a very cool bass intro. I would also recommend Death of a Disco Dancer by The Smiths.
