First bass line you ever learned?


#1

For me, Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit.

(Can’t believe that song’s 27 years old now!)


#2

Nirvana’s Breed.
Same album, song 5 on side one, I believe?


#3

I’ll post here when it happens! Hehe


#4

Ooh good question! Technically first was a simplified version of Hit The Road Jack that my dad taught me.

Then I think it was I Wanna Be Sedated by The Ramones, still love that tune and teach it to students sometimes.


#5

It was a 12 bar blues like the one you tought in the course.
First I tried


And then I found out it‘s not as easy as it sounds.

#6

Oh cool, is this coming in the course?


#7

Nope, actually no Ramones tunes made it into the Beginner to Badass course, maybe in the next one. I do happen to have some old sheet music for it lying around though…


#8

Wow, thank you Josh, will do an in between lesson during the course myself.


#9

Don’t remember a line but the first song I learned all the way thru was “Gonna fly now” from the first Rocky movie.


#10

Ooh, that’s a great bass line!


#11

Was a lot of fun to be playing my sax in the school band then put it down and walk to the front of the stage
, pick up my bass we’d play this song then I’d go back to my sax. Cool for a 7th grader, wish I hadn’t taken a 3 decade break.


#12

With or Without You from U2.
I somewhat laughed when I did the lesson on this riff. :slight_smile:


#13

Nervous Breakdown by Black Flag.

So simple even I could play it :crazy_face:
