    hey

    i was just wondering what songs you guys play when you're feeling low, and you kinda feel like wallowing by playing some sweetass bass line, solo, or just any old song?

    i like playing the intro to my friend misery, by metallica, or dazed and confused, but i want a few more sad sounding songs, but with gd basslines, cause too many songs that are sad and slow have really boring basslines.

    any suggestions?

    take it easy

  6. "dazed and confused" intro
    "one" guitar intro on bass
    "combersome" (7mary3)

    and to try to make me feel better, I play what I have transcribed (from sheet music to tabs) of Fur Elise

  10. Ditto. That or Michelle Branch. Her songs make me feel all good and tingly inside. It's probably gas, though.

    When I'm sad, I get angry. And when I'm sad/angry, METAL! Throw on some Slayer, Pantera, Prong, Gwar. Or grunge, Soundgarden, Nirvana. Angry music. :mad: :mad: :D
     
  12. Ain't No Blue Eyes... i know its kinda cheesy chosing a song by my own band but the sax in that song is the saddest thing i have ever heard... we will be recording in a few weeks... ill have a link to it then.
