pretty fly, come out and play, the kids aren't alright... pretty much all of their more recent stuff. Once you're ready for a "challenge" try I Choose.

Get a tab for the 'bass solo' in Have You Ever...you can keep playing it over and over again and think...im Greg K.
Then get a tab for Around The World by the Chilis and cry...

Good training. Do them in order.
1. Can't Repeat
2. The Kids Aren't Alright
3. Dammit, I Changed Again - (More speed)
4. So Alone
5. Session
6. Beheaded
7. Self Esteem
After this you could do almost whatever.

Well, when you do advance more on bass, learn Tehran, I Choose, Burn it Up, Beheaded, and Have You Ever

three chords, same riff the entire song.

maybe drifting off subject here, but learn all the ones the others have mentioned before attempting Tehran. I have also always thought that Gone Away is not particularly hard.

Almost every single Offspring song is easy. All you need to do is build up your speed, but a lot of their songs are only four chords (TKAA) and are very easy to memorize and play.

I'd say one of the only difficult songs by them on bass is I Choose.

Gone away is really easy(ive been playing for 2 months)
but yeah Cant Repeat takes the easyest song award

the main riff to she's got issues is pretty easy aswell but i still havent worked out the rest of that song

I play bass for 4 years so i can reccomend you few Offspring's songs that are good to play. Maybe some of them aren't so easy but their bass line is better than other's songs.

- I Choose
- Come Out Swinging
- Bad Habit
- What Happened To You?
- Why Don't You Get A Job?
- The Meaning Of Life
- Gotta Get Away
- Da Hui

I also reccomend you learning guitar intro to The Kids Aren't Alright - it's nice to play on bass in verse and chorus.

There's not really a hard offspring song on bass. A few might not be good for beginners. But if you've been playing for more than a year, you should be able to handle anything they've made.


I'd love to see Greg whip out some amazing bass skills on the new album and shock everybody...heh, that'd be great.


I think good songs for beginners to learn on bass are:

Pink Floyd - Money
The Beatles - Day Tripper
The Suicide Machines - No Face
CKY - 99 Quite Bitter Beings
Green Day - Longview


I don't even like most of those songs. They're just really good stuff for a beginner who's just learning how to play.

Yeah, you're right. In my opinion only "I Choose" has got a little hard bass.

You wrote about Green Day's Longview. They've got more songs with ambitious bass line, just hear their first 5 albums.

From other bands and bass lines i reccomend you:
- Green Day
- Guns N' Roses
- The Darkness
- Few Blink 182 songs
