    What are your favorite songs you must play the riff of whenever you pick up your bass and can't help it? For me its King nothing by Metallica and The trooper by Iron maiden. (I wonder how long it will be before my parents get sick of hearing them):D

    Pretty square:

    "Just My Imagination" If I can get that smooth, I'm getting into my place.

    "Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)" gets my funk on.

    The opening riff from "Route 66". I learned one version many years ago and another one more recently. They're both about the same--just different keys--but one of the really great walking riffs. Gets me movin' all over the neck.

    lately, it's been "The Leper" by Dinosaur Jr. Love that tune.
  8. I'll second War Pigs. I just switched to playing it on fretless and it has really put a new shine on it.
