I just started playing bass a few days ago, and this is something I've always wanted to play. I'm working on playing it faster, but yeah here you go.

Nice. Do you play without a pick as well? If you dont, dont limit your playing style just to using a pick. It's sorta looked down upon in the bass playing world.

okey dokey, that was really good for only playing for a few days or so.
But learn it without a pick.

and give me the tab to that, it seems fun to play man.

I'm working on playing without a pick, but since I just started playing it still doesn't sound/feel too good, not to mention it comes out pretty sloppy. Here's the tab I used, there are some parts that don't exactly sound right though.

That's pretty good. Did you play electric before you started playing bass?

I'd say if you have to use pick, at least alternate pick, it'll be a dozen times easier to do those slightly faster parts. Fingers are the way to go though.

Cool video, nice job.

Hey Tony, ever been to lake bodom?

No, I should visit it though just for CoB. Did the band get its name from the raw murders that happened there or just the lake? It wasn't many years ago when this guy was in court accused of murdering those children, but he didn't go to jail people believed he didn't do it.

When I first read your post quickly I thought you were talking about the song hah.

Yeah they got it from Lake Bodom and the children who got killed in Lake bodom. It's like a dedication to them hahaha. WTF.
You should visit it, and get killed too? haha

It sounds much shittier when I use my fingers, and it's harder to play. What are the advantages again?

After you get used to playing with your fingers, it sounds identical if not better and comes very naturally. I would recommend playing with your fingers.

I'm working on it. I'm trying to play this fast, which fingers should I use to strum which strings?

I personally rest my thumb on the pick up or the bottom of the neck and use both my index and middle fingers for all strings. Alternating fingers between notes makes learning to play 8th and 16th notes a hell of a lot easier. Their are other ways of playing, but this is the way I find most comfortable and effective.


For instance, let A be your index finger and B your middle finger. Excuse the underscores.
