    A few days ago, somebody posted a song which was written in the oompa-loompa style, and now I cant find it. I think ir was in a thread that somebody asked about techniques for approaching the bass. Please, if you posted, can you repost, or a link to it. My guitarist needs it!

    Thankyou

    One of my bands used to do a dimented metal version of the Oompa-Loompa song. We could never finish it because we were lauging too hard!

    There's no earthly way of knowing,
    which direction we are going.
    There's no knowing where we're rowing
    Or which way the river's flowing.
    Is it raining, is it snowing, is a hurricane a-blowing?
    Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing.
    By the fires of hell are calling, is the grizzly reaper mowing.
    Yes! The danger must be growing, because,
    THE ROWERS KEEP ON ROWING
    AND THEY CERTAINLY AREN'T SHOWING
    ANY SIGNS THAT THEY ARE SLOWING!!!

    Ok, mabye I asked for it. :eek: :D

    It wasnt a real oompa-loompa song, but one with bass-related lyrics. I seem to remember something about 'practice scales and you will go far'

    I guess there are gonna be loads more immature replys but hey, id be doing the same thing if I was you! :p
