    ..the first thing you do with your new (and first) cell phone is programming the first bars of Teen Town as a ring tone? :D

    Too bad I could't get the first four bars complete, the memory was full after three bars :mad:

    Anyone else have bass-related ringtones?

    I programmed the bass lines from The Commodores' Brick House and from Mr. Bungle's Girls of Porn into my phone
     
  3. i don't have a cell, but i had a buddy who had the bass line to radiohead's "the national anthem" programmed as his ring.
     
  4. Newsted's Bass Doodle off Cunning Stunts when I first got my phone. And then Four Horsemen.

    Regularly attend a bass forum. :D
     
  10. Ive got half of heaps of chili pepper songs on my phone, two verions of Around the World (ones the intro, the other is the verse), This is the Place, BROTHERS CUP, Throw away your television. It makes it so much more enjoyable when I get phonecalls...
     
  11. I've got the whole Word of Mouth CD on mine.


    Sucks I don't have a phone though.

    I must be a guitar player trapped in a bass players body.....my ring tone is the opening guitar riff for Thunderstruck by AC/DC.

    I spent a whole morning once trying to programe Boris The Spider by The Who into my phone!

    Ah the fun of annoying your parents! :p
     
  18. I just made "Donna Lee" on my handphone, too bad my handphone is the old monophonic ones....

    Teen Town's bass line? Let me check from pick's site... :D

    Couldn't finish the whole head of Donna Lee though... I think I managed until 3/4 of the head, but nobody will realize that!

    Once I play this ringtone to my GF, and she said "What is THAT?" sounds like noise to her!
     
  19. what is this thread about :confused: I feel like a fourth grader on speed! :hyper:

    I use it in opposite, i sit down with my phone and try and figure out how to play all the catchy little tunes that are already stored as ringtones. That impresses the chicks :cool:
