I love this song... I hate how people say the bassline boring and too simple when it isn't... Some of the greatest bass peices ever are very simple... It's not about how difficult it is, it's about the effect it has to the song, and how well it fits in. If people can't see that, then they know nothing about being a real bassist.

@Cidantis im sure he gets more pussy than you do. Not that it matters because im sure youd prefer the sensation of a big throbbing cock wedged in between your tonsils.
hi Dave! can i ask you to play a song i want to learn :D
Great lesson !!!.
It's not, it's moving at 41.2Hz same as any other E string that's tuned properly... It's just because of the mis-match between the frames the camera is taking, usually 25fps and the strings movement.
The note names for the main riff and the verse are: F F F F Bb Bb Bb Bb Ab Ab Ab Ab Db Db Db Db you should try to figure out the notes in the other section...
