It would have been incredibly faster for you and more comfortable for us if it were a youtube link.

Tchami - Shot Caller

What's it called when the the drop comes and the beat starts a second too late? It's so catchy.
User avatar #125506 - spawnconnery ONLINE (08/04/2014) [-]
I've had a bass guitar for years now, and only really ever used it a little. Can anyone give me a song with a pretty simplistic bassline for me to learn? If you're kind enough to supply a tab I would be most greatful as well .

Song for your troubles The Mars Volta - Cicatriz ESP (Complete)
User avatar #125552 to #125506 - drldrl (08/04/2014) [-]
Michael Jackson - Beat It (Digitally Restored Version) Three Days Grace - Animal I Have Become These are the first two songs I learned. If you can, RATM basslines are a bit harder, but really fun to play.
User avatar #125645 to #125552 - spawnconnery ONLINE (08/05/2014) [-]
I love RATM's basslines
User avatar #125532 to #125506 - masterofmuffins (08/04/2014) [-]
Stone Temple Pilots - Sour Girl (Video) Simple but good.

If you want something a bit more advanced I'd suggest you this

I've been playing bass for awhile and love it. Tell me what kind of genres you like and I can list a few songs that are easy but sound great. And if you can read tabs, I can direct you to good ones for whatever songs you want to try
User avatar #125644 to #125528 - spawnconnery ONLINE (08/05/2014) [-]
Well I'm quite the fan of metal, but if I like it I'll listen to just about anything. Same goes for what I'll learn on bass.
User avatar #125517 to #125506 - thebestpieever (08/04/2014) [-]
The White Stripes - 'Seven Nation Army' One of the few pop hits that is centred around its bassline.
User avatar #125518 to #125517 - spawnconnery ONLINE (08/04/2014) [-]
Actually I already know how to play this one, thanks though. I probably should've mentioned that, but it didn't cross my mind.
User avatar #125507 to #125506 - shibe ONLINE (08/04/2014) [-]
wow this song is really nice

Joy Division - 06 - She's Lost Control

I don't play bass, but try this, seems easy.
User avatar #125514 to #125507 - haydentheviking (08/04/2014) [-]
that bass part is real smooth i like it alot
User avatar #125512 to #125507 - spawnconnery ONLINE (08/04/2014) [-]
Thanks it's perfect. And yeah The Mars Volta's got some nice stuff.

Fuck man, thanks. This guy named Freddy slipped me some acid and I've been tripping hard about that.

Can anyone tell me what the first song in this video is called? It's some shitty video showcasing an addon for gmod that hasn't existed for almost 2 years now but this addon is the only thing I remember about the song so it's all i had to go on.

User avatar #125503 to #125498 - frikandelspeciaal (08/04/2014) [-]

there have been a lot of remakes of this song

Dream Theater - Dance Of Eternity - That ragtime at 2:40 is pretty awesome. And the bass just gets better in the second half.
This is one of my favorite songs by them. So much packed into 6 minutes.

User avatar #125511 to #125510 - drldrl (08/04/2014) [-]
It's ragtime.

Swell with prog pride.

Also, the ragtime part is all Jordan Rudess's thinking, I think.
User avatar #125488 to #125487 - PopcornViking (08/04/2014) [-]
is that bit from another song?
User avatar #125489 to #125488 - drldrl (08/04/2014) [-]
The ragtime bit?
I don't believe so.

A song I'm working on with a fellow FJ'er anonshenanigans

Let me know what you guys think, and if this is rock, or something else.

anonshenanigans, shibe, biomedic
#125524 to #125486 - anonexplains (08/04/2014) [-]
Guessing you really like Tool? haha I dig it, PopcornViking is right though, the transition could use some work and the polyrhythms fit together after needs some polishing in my opinion but anything tool influenced is a winner in my book.
User avatar #125502 to #125486 - anonshenanigans (08/04/2014) [-]
Sounds a bit strange now that I hear it! Wasn't expecting that, but it is far from over, I've actually put some more work into it, I also got a footswitch the other day so the transitions won't be as funny.
User avatar #125491 to #125486 - PopcornViking (08/04/2014) [-]
the transition at :58 is really weird
User avatar #125504 to #125491 - dragonicangel ONLINE (08/04/2014) [-]
I'll fix it.

I don't know why I didn't bother replying to this until now even though I saw your comment right when you posted it

Yeah, it's probably my favorite album right now (not of all time tho obvs)

what do you mean you see why I like them now?
User avatar #125556 to #125548 - teoyeezy (08/05/2014) [-]

Juicy J - Who Da Neighbors (Prod. Lex Luger) tfw papa and mama teo both quote this song
User avatar #125458 - thebestpieever (08/04/2014) [-]
So I've been noticing something. I have this tendency to end my singing sentences with an "ah" that's somewhere between a desperate breath and a sigh. I blame the ungodly amount of hours I spent listening to Michael Jackson before I even knew I wanted to sing, I'm almost sure I picked it up from him because my brain said "no, this is it, this is how you're supposed to sing".

The problem is I don't sing a lot of pop and it just doesn't fit with plenty of the music I sing and I don't know how to turn it off. Seriously, this shit is automatic. I didn't notice it for years and now it drives me crazy.
User avatar #125456 - imonaboatman (08/04/2014) [-]
I'm in need of some new, preferably acoustic (or just relaxing), indie/alternative/emo stuff that's really sad - similar to Bright Eyes, Iron and Wine, Brand New, Radiohead, old Modest Mouse, American Football, etc. Any help would be appreciated.
User avatar #125460 to #125456 - beren (08/04/2014) [-]
If you like folksy, have you ever listened to the Head and the Heart?
User avatar #125461 to #125460 - imonaboatman (08/04/2014) [-]
I haven't. What songs should I listen to?
User avatar #125463 to #125461 - beren (08/04/2014) [-]
I love almost every one of their songs, but the ones that pulled me at first were Down in the Valley and Lost in My Mind, from their first album, The Head and the Heart.


Anyway. It's a folksy, relaxing tune. I listen to them for exams and writing papers, and they're excellent.
User avatar #125464 to #125463 - imonaboatman (08/04/2014) [-]
Just listened to Down in the Valley and liked it a lot. Thanks!
User avatar #125465 to #125464 - beren (08/04/2014) [-]
Glad to hear it. At first, I liked those two songs and was pretty "meh" on the rest, but the more I listened to them the more I loved them. Almost every song from both The Head and the Heart and Let's Be Still is great. I highly recommend just putting on a Youtube playlist--sit back and enjoy!
User avatar #125457 to #125456 - thebestpieever (08/04/2014) [-]
Pinkerton by Weezer I suppose.
User avatar #125459 to #125457 - imonaboatman (08/04/2014) [-]
I love Pinkerton. Been listening to it for years. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Street Light - Bullet & A Scripture [Official Music Video] (Prod. Selah Beats) 1st Place WINNER - Street Light - BEEF [Don't Fu[$]k Up Our Beats 5 Hosted by Funk Volume] Anyone else like wordplay?
User avatar #125484 to #125450 - awesomerninjathing (08/04/2014) [-]
so like... rap?
User avatar #125451 to #125450 - thebestpieever (08/04/2014) [-]
What, like the concept of wordplay or is there something related to these songs called wordplay that I'm missing?
User avatar #125452 to #125451 - flippiobaie (08/04/2014) [-]
I may be using the term wrong but I was referring to his usage of entendres and MULTIS. These might not be the best examples of his work either.
User avatar #125453 to #125452 - thebestpieever (08/04/2014) [-]
Oh, I really dig multisyllabic rhymes. If it's possible I think you should always make them. I enjoy my double entendres if they're spread out enough, like, say, "Lovegun" by Kiss but not if they're the rank and file of the lyrics.
User avatar #125445 - RisenLichen (08/03/2014) [-]
Does anyone have any tips as to how to play piano?

I've always wanted to learn but the best I can do is read music. Everyone I meet plays by ear and is way better at actually playing
User avatar #125447 to #125445 - thebestpieever (08/03/2014) [-]
That's not because playing by ear makes you better but because once you get to a level where you can play by ear then you're already pretty good at it by then. It's all about practice.
User avatar #125448 to #125447 - RisenLichen (08/03/2014) [-]
I've been playing for over a year and there are people that cant read music and they do better than i can. I can barely do simple melodies without fucking up. Its frustrating

Opeth - Eternal Rains (Audio) the new opeth single is too good

the old school prog sound is very much a part of this song

User avatar #125470 to #125469 - themagicwizard (08/04/2014) [-]
I heard a single from it a while ago, it didn't really interest me too much. Did the rest of the album leak this early?
User avatar #125472 to #125471 - themagicwizard (08/04/2014) [-]
Lol, it's not supposed to come out until October. How do you like it?
User avatar #125473 to #125472 - shibe ONLINE (08/04/2014) [-]
well i'm only on the second song, the first one is the single he released a bit a while ago

this is different from anything else he's done it seems
User avatar #125474 to #125473 - themagicwizard (08/04/2014) [-]
Have you listened to a lot of his Caribou stuff? I've only heard Swim.
User avatar #125475 to #125474 - shibe ONLINE (08/04/2014) [-]
Well I've heard the milk of human kindness and swim, but haven't heard andorra.

You have a very simplistic view of people, then.

No. You are to die in the chopping block tomorrow. Ask Shibe your last request, for he hay concede it.
