Top Ten Hardest Bass Riffs


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Black Magic Woman - Santana

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

102 The Four Horsemen - Metallica
103 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.

104 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

105 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...

106 Souls of Black - Testament

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

107 Bloodmeat - Protest the Hero
108 Salute to Kareem - Red Hot Chili Peppers
109 Guti - Aurthohin
110 Cancer - Aurthohin
111 Moonchild - Iron Maiden
112 Turn the Page - Rush
113 Destiny - Stratovarius
114 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!

115 Time Is Running Out - Muse
116 Genghis Khan - Iron Maiden V 1 Comment
117 A Million Ways - OK Go
118 Hammer Smashed Face - Cannibal Corpse V 1 Comment
119 Barbarism Begins At Home - The Smiths
120 Speak Free - Incubus

Not the hardest but if Green Day is on here this deserves at least a mention.
