i can play some songs on drums and parts of others on guitar! there just very quick which makes them quite hard i think! does anyone learn the songs note for note or just learn them to sound near enough?!

I can play Kill the president on drums ;)

yeah man, I can play that song too! In fact, I tabbed that song for mxtabs!

http://www.mxtabs.net/tabs.php?path=Drums,o,3218,The+Offspring,Kill+The+ President,192031 (and I also found a mistake on it, if you know what the song sounds like, you'll know where it is)

I can also play Da Hui, and a lot more. Right now I'm tabbing Hypodermic.

Well, thats pretty much it so far. I'm nowhere near Greg K. yet lol

lol; i'm just waiting for the day that Greg hurts his wrist at a concert and they look for a temporary replacement, and i just happen to be in the crowd!!! :p


Copying Greg K. is how i learnt bass! The Offspring's songs were my only teachers! :D

lint
04-09-2005, 03:42 PM
NIG thats awesome. I've been playing for 2 years. i try to learn a new song by them as often as possible. That would be something if he hurt his wrist, wouldnt it?

Noodles is gay
04-09-2005, 03:50 PM
cheers! Been playing for 3 years.

You got a teacher?

I can only hope! :D

lint
04-09-2005, 03:52 PM
lol yeah i got a teacher. just got back from lessons just a little while a go as a matter of fact. but he doesnt teach me the offspring. i do that myself :D

Noodles is gay
04-09-2005, 03:54 PM
oh right, wicked - my parents wouldn't let me have a teacher! Meanies!

you play with a pick or fingers? I play pick because it was easier to pick up bass that way, plus Greg K does too!

lint
04-09-2005, 03:59 PM
I'm better with my fingers, but I'm trying to learn how to use a pick for all the songs i can play. so far i have Gotta Get Away down with both fingers and a pick. thats really it so far, but i practice a lot, so i'll get them all soon enough. :)

Noodles is gay
04-09-2005, 04:07 PM
oh - tis the complete opposite for me. i play everything with a pick and i'm very slowly learning with fingers. crazy. later :p

most of them. not being arrogant, but after a while you can pick up chord progressions quickly.

05-31-2005, 05:48 AM
I'm slightly dubious about my tab of 'i choose' on bass though - i'm currently revising it.

I fixed my tab - I can now profess to be able to play every single Offspring song on bass. :cool:

on bass, i can pretty much play all of their songs. maybe some i havent heard for a while, i'll need to listen for a minute, but then i got it. as far as that goes i have a pretty good ear.

Drummerguy123
05-31-2005, 11:04 AM
I can play pretty much every Offspring song I've heard. (I still haven't heard Defy you or other songs not on their main 7 c-d's). My favorite are Americana, Nitro (Youth Energy) and Long Way Home.

panzor41
05-31-2005, 11:17 AM
I just started ....I want to learn to play

1. Pretty Fly
2. Cant Repeat


Maybe Bad Habit.

StayInTheHouseCarl
05-31-2005, 11:19 AM
i think for bass, bad habit is the pivotal offspring song to learn.

Drummerguy123
05-31-2005, 11:19 AM
What instrument do you play?

StayInTheHouseCarl
05-31-2005, 11:24 AM
you talking to me, or panzor?
probably panzor, but i can play bass, guitar, and drums. focus on bass.

Drummerguy123
05-31-2005, 11:26 AM
I was talking to you. Focus on drums. Drums are awesome. Drums will eat guitars and basses. I've got blisters on my hands from drumming.

CommonRider
05-31-2005, 11:34 AM
I can only play a couple, Dirty Magic, No Hero, Vultures, Gone Away, and OP. Dirty Magic is easy and tons of fun to play

China Boy
05-31-2005, 12:15 PM
I know various riffs from a whole lot of songs, but in most cases I haven't bothered to learn the whole songs yet. I know the following (on guitar):

Walla Walla
The Kids Aren't Alright (not the solo)
Want You Bad
Cant Get My Head Around You
Gone Away
Hit That (playing the piano thingy on the guitar)
She's Got Issues

That's about it, I'm quite a newbie at guitar, so I mostly play Green Day songs because they are easier (Billie Joe isn't as skilled as Noodles) :p
By the way, do anyone here have a good I Choose Tab. All I have found seem a bit unreliable. If you have one, please post it here, or if it's a Guitar Pro tab, post the link.

Okay, I lied. I am still having trouble playing Hypodermic. It's kind frustrating. Oh, and another one of my favorites to play that I somehow forgot (brainfart, as they say in my city) is Gone Away.

and I'm learning Pay The Man.... damnit.

Drummerguy123
05-31-2005, 09:36 PM
Pay the man has an awesome drum beat. I love playiing that when I'm not in a loud mood. (I don't play it that much. I'm too busy with the Nitro (Youth Energy) beat).

Camilamazed
05-31-2005, 09:36 PM
Cammie can't play a thing :(

Drummerguy123
05-31-2005, 09:40 PM
Aww, I'm sorry. Music is much more fun if you play it yourself. You should try learning the drums. They are easy to pick up on and they are so much fun. Give it a try, I promise you'll like it. ;)

OffspringInOz
06-01-2005, 01:47 AM
On guitar...(BTW I'm 12 and started guitar last year)

(Can't Get My) Head around you
Amazed
Beheaded
Dirty Magic
Original Prankster
Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)
Gone Away

I know there's more...but can't remember them just now.

Most of the songs when I play them sound pretty crappy though cos I've just got a Marshall 15watt MG DFX amp, which is pretty much just a beginners or practice amp. I think it cost about $350 Australian. Its got all your normal stuff like Distortion, Reverb, chorus, etc...But never sounds very impressive when recorded.

Caz
06-01-2005, 02:47 AM
dude - it's punk music = fucken easy shit, if you can play one song you can play them all... who CAN'T play them all? it's not like theres any particularly different or harder songs, and for bragging rights; i can play them all :)
