Hardest Songs to Play on Bass Guitar


The Top Ten

1 YYZ - Rush

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

2 Not Fragile - Bachman–Turner Overdrive
3 Tommy the Cat - Primus

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

4 I'm The One - Van Halen
5 The Trooper - Iron Maiden
6 Heartbreaker - Led Zeppelin
7 Boris The Spider - The Who
8 My Generation - The Who
9 The Dance of Eternity - Dream Theater

First you need a six string bass. Next you give up after 5000 tries. Voila! - naFrovivuS

10 Pow - Graham Central Station

Won't say it's the hardest, but its quite hard. - zxm

The Contenders

11 (Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth - Metallica
12 And Justice for All - Metallica
13 Aeroplane - Red Hot Chili Peppers
14 Hammer Smashed Face - Cannibal Corpse
15 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

16 Voodoo Child - Jimi Hendrix
17 The Number of the Beast - Iron Maiden
18 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.

19 Peace Sells - Megadeth
20 Around the World
