    Two step, recently, crush, ants marching, anything off of Crash or Before These Crowded Streets should do you just fine :)

    I agree with ^^^ But here's a few favorites of mine.

    Crush (DUH)
    What Would You Say (Great walking line)
    Rapunzel (Great fills!!)
    The Best of What's Around
    Crash Into Me (Pretty cool intro)
    Dancing Nancies (LOVE the chorus)
    Don't Drink The Water
    I Did It
    So Much To Say
    Too Much (VERY easy but fun)
    Two Step

    It's been said that you can take away all the instruments from this band except for bass and drums and you'd be able to recognize almost any song. Now I know that's common for a lot of music, but for something so popular to be driven by the low end... ya gotta love it!

    He used to use a thumb 6 pre-Everyday.

    Before Everyday:
    Warwick Dolphin pro-4
    Warwick Dolphin pro-5
    Warwick Thumb 6

    Everyday, on:
    Modulus Flea 4
    Modulus Flea custom 5
    Modulus Quantum 5 fretless.

    With the 05 tours, fonzie also started using a ken smith 6, a quantum 6, and a fender precision, on select songs.
