Hardest Songs to Play on Bass Guitar


The Top Ten

1 Not Fragile - Bachman–Turner Overdrive
2 The Trooper - Iron Maiden
3 Boris The Spider - The Who
4 I'm The One - Van Halen
5 YYZ - Rush

Seriously? You're putting Metallica and LZ higher than Rush? No way, man. It's insulting for Ged.

6 Heartbreaker - Led Zeppelin
7 Guti (The Finale) - Aurthohin Guti (The Finale) - Aurthohin

Different bassists tried to cover it. No luck. No one could play like him. Just couldn't get the speed like him. - zxm

8 My Generation - The Who
9 Nikrishto - Aurthohin

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.

10 Tommy the Cat - Primus

Man, this is probably one of the hardest. In some parts it sounds very loud. - zxm
