Top Ten Hardest Bass Riffs


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Good Luck My Way - L'Arc~en~Ciel

Tesuya is one of the best bassists on this planet, his lines are never anything near simple.

62 Feel Good Drag - Anberlin

I am a bass payer I found this harder than YYZ. Simply because of the triplets.

63 Harder to Breathe - Maroon 5
64 5:15 - The Who

John Entwistles incredible bass solo is in this song. It like, impossible man.

65 I Will Survive - Cake
66 Coffee Shop - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Amazed no one else believes this song isn't hard. the second solo alone can make some veterans curse flea's name. it took me about 4 days just to get the slapping right on the verses.

67 Booshuckdow - Assorted Jelly Beans
68 Red Hot Chili Peppers - Get Up and Jump

This song is harder than practically every other song on here! Its also badass!

69 Forty Six & 2 - Tool
70 Scarified- Racer X
71 21st Century Schizoid Man - King Crimson

This song has a really wacky off kilter song structure that makes this song extremely difficult to recreate. Definitely an accomplishment to get this one down.

72 Classical Thump - Victor Wooten

The entire song is insanely fast, and is played almost exclusively with your thumb. This is probably the hardest song to learn how to play, and there are so many unique parts to learn.

73 Rio - Duran Duran V 1 Comment
74 Peg - Steely Dan & Tom Scott
75 The Distance - Cake

The timing is what makes it difficult

76 The Invisible Man - Helloween
77 Vapour Trails - Pekka Pohjola

For some time I've been wondering, if Geddy Lee was familiar with mighty Pohjola's basslines?

78 I Might Be Wrong - Radiohead
79 Bombtrack - Rage Against the Machine
80 Eyes of the Squirrel - Primus

There are songs a way easier here. This one should be higher

This is a really fast bass line that is difficult to play constantly accurate and to play 100% the way les claypool plays it.
