Well, I used my thumb for some of it. But the first ones are all three fingers. I haven't done this in awhile so I wasn't able to keep it up.

Here we go.

I'm gonna try to learn the whole Iron Maiden album Number of the Beast.


Great album. Actually I prefer Dream Theater's cover of the entire album. They don't sell it, but you can probably download a copy somewhere.


Fuck Dream Theater. Number of the Bistro deserves to be listened to in its original state.

Plus DT does sell their performance of that album, except it's under a "secret official bootleg" label. I know so because my brother owns them all.
UGH.

i own them all too and like them. ): ): ): ): DT hate makes norg cry.

the ytsejam label is because their previous record label contract would not permit them to sell their live shows in an official capacity so they had to do so via other means. now that their contract has expired, nobody knows what is next.

obnoxious cry too.

That, and I demand that this thread should have been named bassarra.


To get more on topic, this is the extent of my bass skills:

ok got it working. That's good stuff! I just practiced for a couple hours, and I got 16ths up to 120 with 3 fingers, 125 with 2 fingers. The 3 finger 16ths aren't totally clean yet, but it's a big improvement from where they were.


Hard VG stuff to play on bass: Blaster Master stage 1, Batman stage 1. I can alllmost do Blaster Master, it's at 128 bpm.

Although I play bass, I have as much place in this thread as the guitarra thread. I play bass with a pick. A PICK!

Someone ought to just take my instruments away.

I too play with a pick. Well, because I'm a guitarist just trying to do the bass parts live. Eh, it's better than nothing.

I hate John deacon from queen, I love queen so much and want to play it oh so badly but it's either stupid easy like another bites the dust and crazy little thing called love, or it's a kind of magic .... then he does this insane shit like bicycle race and you're my best friend and my brain hurts trying to figure out some of his weird rythms. They are really weird, they don't sound so bad but look at some of em on sheet music. What a bastard. :wub:

Yeah man. There's something ungodly (in a bad bad way) about playing bass with a pick.

I just need to find a bassist who's willing to play the shit I write.

Tell it to Bob Weston.

Seriously though, you know who hurts my head? The fuckin' Ox. John Entwhistle. I don't think any of his digits went unused.
