Top Ten Hardest Bass Riffs


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Castaway - Green Day

This song is extremely fast, at least 232 beats per minute, and you have to play 32 notes at some parts. This is based off a tab I have and when seeing them play it live it seems faster and it has much more notes, and possibly even some chords.

102 Don't Stop Believin' - Journey
103 Black Magic Woman - Santana

The Bass for this song is insane and so amazing a definite for any bass player who has some taste

104 The Four Horsemen - Metallica
105 Lurker - Dweller

Amazingly fast and beautiful bass solo at 3:30. One of the best I've ever heard. It definitely deserves a place on this list.

106 Black Dog - Led Zeppelin

The timeing on this sons is difficalt

107 The Number of the Beast - Iron Maiden

One of the best bass lines on the second solo. So tough to play!

The bass goes nuts during the solo! I love it

108 Dead Men Tell No Tales - Motorhead

Pretty easy until you get to the guitar solo, all the mad bass stuff under that's a right bitch...

109 Souls of Black - Testament

This song has one of the best bass rifts in history. Fun and difficult to play.

110 Bloodmeat - Protest the Hero
111 Salute to Kareem - Red Hot Chili Peppers
112 Guti - Aurthohin
113 Cancer - Aurthohin
114 Moonchild - Iron Maiden
115 Turn the Page - Rush
116 Destiny - Stratovarius
117 Panic Station - Muse

Awesome, few strings at once and the higher frets are actually on top of my bass but great song!

Not too hard. But so good! All basslines here that are hard are really bad. Can't beat muse to be honest. Just enough bass! Not too hard. Not too easy!

118 Time Is Running Out - Muse
119 Genghis Khan - Iron Maiden V 1 Comment
120 A Million Ways - OK Go
