Hardest Songs to Play on Bass GuitarRpemk
The Top Ten
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
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. - zxm
Very fast slapping stuff. - Userguy44
Should be on top 10. - zxm
Won't say it's the hardest, but its quite hard. - zxm
Its fast. But Guti (The Finale) was technically better/hard. Especially the last tapping part. - zxm
"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. - zxm
It should be on the top ten.
Flea is a genius - Userguy44
Michael Anthony can actually play! - Userguy44
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
Different bassists tried to cover it. No luck. No one could play like him. Just couldn't get the speed like him. - zxm
Roger Glover can definitely play a bass guitar. - Userguy44
Christian Music is The Best... God Bless all People..!
My Generation is harder - Userguy44
Man, that bass riff is insane. Check this out.
The song starts with tapping bass solo using both hands and gets worse from there. Sweeps and tapping like 80% of the song. Unlike brain drill songs this is a bit more constructed but still has the same amount of ridiculous virtuosity. I can't imagine how Hysteria is harder than this and let's not talk about songs like Another one bites the dust. Origin, Viraemia, Brain Drill, Necrophagist, Beyond Creation and other thechnical metal bands make those kinds of ridiculous songs which take months and months to learn if you are not used to it.
It's not a super popular song, that's the only excuse its not at number one. Everybody who sees the bass on this song (->Youtube) and excludes sympathy will agree. Every song which is higher than this one (except maybe Billy Sheehan solos) is just because the voter likes the band/song and wasnt voting for the hardest bass song.
I gave it a listen, and it sounds damn hard.
It's fast. I don't know how Cliff did this - Userguy44
There's a lot to the bass part that makes it hard to play. It's mostly in the first section where the bass is doing the most.
This is not hard
mad - YeeMan
I don't play bass guitar yet, but this song sounds hard to me.
Geezer goes pretty insane on this one - 678
Harder than tommy the cat. That’s all I gotta say.
Obviously one of the hardest songs ever... Fall Out Boy is goals.
His stuff are hard to do
The part right before and during the solo. - Userguy44
