Can anybody tell me who these fellows might be?
good crap i hope you're kidding
steve harris from Iron Maiden
Cliff Burton ex of Metallica
I just quit playing the bass because of this thread.
"run to the hills!! run for your life!!"
a friend of mine made that song the ringer on his cell, now he never answers. he's too busy getting his metal on. it's hilarious.
thankyou very much. I'm only beginning my self education of important bassists in this genre...took me a while to get to this, but i'm here now.
good crap, Grooveman! look at what you've done!!
TBer's are dropping like flies! make it stop!! MAKE IT STOP!!!
Hey Grooveman, you've chosen two very worthwhile bassists with which to begin your metal journey!
What are the best examples of their work?
Well, I would say for Cliff you would be looking at the Kill em All album. Don't get too hung up on Anesthesia tho, its good but I believe his best work lies in the following:
Master of Puppets
Hit The Lights
Seek and Destroy
Blitzkreig (although thats a cover)
Fight Fire with Fire
As for Steve, I find that newcomers to the Iron Maiden scene enjoy songs like Fear of the Dark. Then, for more Awesome Steve playing try:
No More Lies
There are a lot more songs by these two out there, but those should keep you occupied, especially if you intend to learn them!
Very worthy joice. Have fun learning.
to the OP: don't take this the wrong way, but....is this a serious thread? even if you're not into metal, i can't see how a TBer wouldn't have heard of Harris or Burton
All good stuff, just one thing: Fear of the Dark the song is okay, if you are looking to buy an album Fear of the Dark is NOT the one to get. Probably the worst record they ever made.
i think judas be my guide and childhoods end were great songs, but other than those and the title track, i agree. worst iron maiden album.
thanks for the links Would'E?, and the works recomendations F'nar F'nar
cliff's wildest playing is on 'Call of the Ktulu', much better than pulling teeth and orion imo. just a shame you can't really hear it. with excellent headphones it's barely audible. the little solo in orion is excellent though.
I dont like metallica
neither do i, but keep it on the down low.
You don't have to like Metallica to appreciate Cliff Burton. I don't necessarily like Iron Maiden, but I greatly admire Steve Harris' playing. In fact I used to sit and watch my brothers Iron Maiden video tapes strictly for the purpose of watching Harris tear that bass up.
