Smoke on the water!! was mine. I found it very intimidating. It was a current hit on the radio.
The groove to The Payback - James Brown
“In The Midnight Hour”, then I tackled “Sunshine Of Your Love”.
The Spirit of Radio. A very...very.....very simplistic version of it.
Then I worked on it.
Foghat: I Just Want To Make Love To You. I was 14 in 1974 when me and few friends formed up. We had seen a band, Earthrise, open with it at a school dance and we were determined to learn it; we were OK on it. : )
Flashlight then Chameleon
I “figured out” quite a few bass lines on guitar before I switched over to bass. Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone by the Temptations was the first song I learned with a bass in my hands, and it was more about the timing than the notes.
Rail - 'Bandit' as I recall....
Israel's Son by Silverchair.
And then a whole slew of other simple 90's tunes. Ahhh, to be a teenager again.
The bass lines to SRV. Not by choice. It was what most bands were doing at the time.
Then I bought Jaco's book.....
"Hey, Joe" and then "Dazed and Confused", "Whole Lotta Love" and "Sympathy for the Devil".
Because I already played 6-string, see ...
Rush - Freewill
My friend Misery - Metallica
First I can remember getting right was Pink Floyd - Money.
Oh, it was nowhere near the real thing. But it was the first thing I ever heard from them and I was mesmerized by that main lick. I had, not too long before, just started playing bass (Southern gospel stuff) and that was the first rock music I felt pulled to listen to and try.
Best that I can recall....
In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, Iron Butterfly (1968)
Sunshine Of Your Love, Cream (1967)
They were similar enough that I don’t remember which one I learned first.
