Hardest Songs to Play on Bass Guitar
The Top Ten
I agree YYZ is very hard, but this song is just impossible. YYZ is fast, but Tommy is extremely fast, slap, and just insane. #1 for sure
Man, this is probably one of the hardest. In some parts it sounds very loud.
Should have been higher than YYZ, still amazing though
Very fast slapping stuff.
It was between this song and Tommy the Cat for me. YYZ is just so fast and spread out with the random bass solos. Tommy the cat is extremely fast while slapping/popping. It's a tie.
Good and hard to play. But it is nowhere near as hard as any victor wooten piece, he invented the double slap and is the only bass player to master the technique
Seriously? You're putting Metallica and LZ higher than Rush? No way, man. It's insulting for Ged.
Really? people legit put YYZ under the top three, this is an insult to Ged
The start and the others are easy, but the end part with the drums and the development is very hard
A bass solo song, what's more to say
Hardest Song ever on bass
Not really that hard. More of a time commitment☺
Won't say it's the hardest, but its quite hard.
Entwistle was amazing, especially when you consider the 60s guitar he was playing.
The legendary Steve Harris
Crazy song. Random bass solos and very complex
Flea is a genius
Surprised this wasn't on the list.
With all the time signatures, not to mention the impossible bass solo... One of the hardest.
If you can play this song on the bass you will be able to play anything you want.
First you need a six string bass. Next you give up after 5000 tries. Voila!
Come on of course Dream Theater is always the hardest
"Aurthohin - Nikrishto ( RockNation III )" Its on YouTube. Never believed it would be that much of difficult. Always though it was a slap bass played at the intro, never though a tapping bass sounds like this.
Its fast. But Guti (The Finale) was technically better/hard. Especially the last tapping part.
It should be on the top ten.
Marc Anthony is my favorite bassist of all time.
Michael Anthony can actually play!
Different bassists tried to cover it. No luck. No one could play like him. Just couldn't get the speed like him.
Not a complicated bass line but the keeping up with the tempo throughout the whole song is hard
Hope you have hands made out of solid iron, 'because otherwise your hands will turn to mush before you even get half-way through the song.
His stuff are hard to do
This is criminally low
Should be a lot higher
Great cut and highlights Chris Squires genius
Christian Music is The Best... God Bless all People..!
Roger Glover can definitely play a bass guitar.
really good song
