  1. Girls get mad when I wanted to play guitar with my friends instead of hanging out with her... Girls get mad when I spend more money on guitar stuff than her... Girls get mad when I hold my guitar more than I hold her... Yes, I know what you mean.
  2. I know thundergod' date=' I think your the only one who has read my post. People are posting basslines from dream theater, math core groups, and heavy death progressive metal groups (you get my drift), theres nothing wrong with that. I don't think it make a good bass riff. quoted from my jazz teachers, A drummer of 30 years playing with some of the top jazz players around the world "A riff is a short, [i']simple[/i] repeated statement" -Brian Kendrick
  3. For you guitarist out there, what do you like the bassist to do when your soloing?
  4. In all honesty thats not a riff, thats just awesome bass playing. You guys are all picking awesome bass lines, but they aren't simple. I like a complex bass riff too. But bass riffs need to be simple sometimes.
  5. What ever makes you wanna buy a guitar with some guys name on it for top dollar.
  6. Which riff are you talking about? theres like 17 of em in that song?
  7. Never herd of it, Not doubting that is cool or anything. Gezzer Butler is a awesome bass player. But I never hear it on the radio.
  8. Now, I know there alot of great bass players who have created very complex bass lines. (I.E. Primus, Rush, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Who, .... ) I get that, but I believe that playing a great bass riff is keeping it simple so that you can sing it your head and remember it till it becomes stuck in your head. Don't get me wrong I think Muse - Hysteria is a awesome but it's too much. Do you know what I mean? A good bass line is also the main focus of the song, you hear everything else playing like drums, vocals, and guitar. But the bass seems to stick out more. what is your take?
  9. I think I already had a thread like this, but here is my choice http://cgi.ebay.com/Electric-Bass-Guitar-Fretless-Headless-Vampire-Bad_W0QQitemZ260508627084QQcmdZViewItemQQptZGuitar?hash=item3ca786308c
  10. One of her moves is to the long "neck" finger slide all the up and down the bass...
  11. He proclaims that he is the biggest underrated drummer of all time. I personally think he is one of the worst drummers of all time, his drums sound like (sorry for the lack of better term) crap. His drum fills suck. He repeats his "sucky" drum fills constantly. I guess he can play really fast beats but that's about it. what do you guys think?
  12. Abe Meirpol and is it Bessie Smith or Billy Holiday. I always get those confused
  13. Blues is the root and the rest is the fruit... you have 12 bar blues AAB 16 Bar Blues AABA Blues is like pornography you know it when you see it but you can't explain it...
  14. Play hard within the rules and confines of the game... Elbow, knee, feet, and hand are going to be flying through the air "just because" due to the nature of the sport, being a quick, fast adjustment/moving game of soccer. Trying to keep you balance and spacing requires your body to use your body parts to balance itself out. I'm certain that elbow to the back with hurtful intent and "pulling of the hair" is not in the rule book.

  16. A Robot Guitar through the Line 6 Pedal Board, you got every tone in the world right there. and Amp? Just Plug it in to the Houses FOH. Getty Lee did...
  17. I saw the movie "The Mist" by Stephan King. I hope the Army doesn't experiment with portals to other worlds.
  18. A lot of "Jazz" guys use them. They seem good if you want tone without having to carry around 11 pounds of old growth wood on your shoulders.
  19. I didn't do any reviews when I bought my Acoustic Corp. 136 15in Combo Bass Amp. All I knew is that Joco P. from "Weather Report" used one. And if it's good enough for him, it's good enough for me.
  20. Led Zeppelins first album was basically just cover songs right? I mean they took songs and made little changes in them. :D How many more times=How many more years The Lemon Song=I ain't got you
