I play guitar, but sometimes I play bass when I get bored. Then I like to play Longview by Green Day. But my favorite offspring song to play on the bass is Walla Walla.

Dirrty Magic, Me and My Old Lady, Have You Ever are ones I can think of off the top of my head. Gone Away and Pretty Fly are also alright for when I'm playing together with my mates.

I like to play The Worst Hangover Ever. Million Miles Away and The Kids Aren't Alright is also fun to play and make diffrent bass lines to.

Right On, Longview has gotta be one of the best bass songs ever.

I play bass lines on my guitar. So far I know Welcome to Paradise (except the solo), Longview, Minority, and Warning. By the Offspring, I know Gotta Get Away, Can't Repeat, and the beginning of Bad Habit.

I can't wait to get my bass back, it's getting serviced. It's so bad i am having dreams about playing the damn thing.
As for Offspring,. Dirty Magic, Pretty Fly, Gone Away, are all pretty good to play, and Gotta Get Away and Bad Habit.

I'm thinking of getting a bass later this year. They're freakin' hard to find, especially because I'm left handed.

I just got a bass, and learning how to play... I want to know how to play the intro into LAPD, but I think its to advanced for me...

LAPD? Isn't that all open notes on the bottom string? If that's too hard, try Brain Stew by Green Day. Easier on bass than on guitar.

I think the only Offspring songs that are fun to play on bass are Demons, Session, Burn it Up, LAPD, and Kill the President. Offspring songs were really fun when I first started, but now most of their songs are just boring to play. A lot of their songs have really repetitive and simple basslines.

And LAPD is simple! especially the intro. It's the same note over and over and over.

So I was a little off...I don't play bass (yet) so I wouldn't know.

I can play Genocide, Smash, Mota (I keep fucking that up, though lol), some of Meaning of Life, All I Want, Way Down the Line, Change the World, PFFAWG, She's Got Issues, Walla Walla, All Along, and Denial, Revisited.


True, some songs were hard at first, but then you keep working at'em!
