What not to play

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by bassteban, Dec 28, 2004.


  1. ...the first few bars of any Lynrd Skynrd tune(or any tune, for that matter), if you can't play the rest. No offense to Southern Rock fans, just to clowns that tease you with the hook, then can't finish it. Anyone else?

    I play Skynrd because the trolls always yell FREEBIRD like they do at every other bar they goto so we give it to them.

  9. Is not. Made you think you're cool.


    ...you're welcome.
     
  10. Um, hey, brat- I just noticed that 'useless post' is part of your sig-thingie. I'm dumb- you probably really feel smart now.

    Ignore me.
     
  11. An instrumental by Herbie Hancock from the 1970s. :cool:

  12. Thank you so much, Mr. Jewels. If you ever care to branch out into egg salad, you must watch 'What's up, Tiger Lily' by Woodie Allen.
     
  13. Sounds like an answer to the title to me.
     
  14. Bah boh doh beeee dat. . . beeee dat. . .

    Chameleon is the most fun jam song ever. I never get bored of playing that on bass, especially slapping -- adding interesting funky fills and putting in plenty of muted pops and stuff. Man. So cool. It's amazing I'm not bored stiff of that song, seeing that I've been playing it for so many years. Most bass players I know are sick of playing that song.

    A classic but still a great one. When they yell Freebird!

    Kindly raise your middle finger, and reply "Here's your free bird"

    If you can't play it, don't noodle around with it! A very long time ago, our guitarist would noodle endlessly between songs and play the kick off or a phrase frome some Skynard song we did not know, get someone in the audience excited and all ready to hear that song.
