  1. What are some basslines that sound wonderful but is absolutely impossible to solo over?

    I was jamming with a friend yesterday after lunch, and I started playing the bassline from To Defy the Laws of Tradition (Primus) and my friend, who is a pretty decent guitarist, just could not solo over it. I told him the notes that I played C#G# chord and DA chord (for people that know the song), but he just could not find something to play... I found that funny =)

    There is no such thing... Larry LaLonde managed to solo over To Defy's bassline.

    No such thing as a bassline that can't be soloed over, there is such a thing as a guitarist who doesn't know how to solo though.

  4. well by impossible i mean hard... like weird chord/note progressions, etc

    look up the changes to giant steps by Coltrane... :rolleyes:

    Why do you take pride in proving that your guitarist isn't good? Shouldn't you be more concerned with songs you can play WITH your guitarist instead of starting a war against him?
  6. no I just thought it's odd to see a guitarist not being able to solo over a bassline, and he's not my guitarist anyway =P hes just a friend from school

    Technically with work, you could solo over anything...
