    most surprisingly hard bass song

    What is your most surprisingly hard bass song.

    For me it is BOSTON Amanda.

    I mean it is a slow ballad!
    I have been surprised how I have struggled with it.

    Iron Maiden songs.
    Sure, metal, not easy, but it didn't sound as thought as it was for me!

    Had to find myself a plectrum to manage the songs on score attack hard

    For me Space Oddity. Nothing repeats, so learning one part of the song doesn't help with the others. Just didn't sound that hard before I tried it. Love playing it, but I always a struggle.

    OK I have a new bass song that is infuriating me:

    Melissa Etheridge - I'm the Only One

    There are 8 down-bends, 1 up-bend, and 3 slides.
    These are the curse of me. and I swear the game automatically says miss until I play it in riff repeater then it becomes more lax like "hey he got 100% on it in practice so we'll let his sloppy playing slide"


    and some stupid section in the middle thats literally blue-3 blue-5 yellow-3 yellow-5
    but it always says miss or late.
    I cant figure the damn thing out. I think it might be some intonation deal where the tones are still ringing from the blue notes when I play the yellow ones.
    Notes are so fast that it's really hard to stop the sound.

    the song is like 2 weeks old and I've played this one at least 75 times trying to get a 100% run.

    (and I'm not even complaining about the last bar which comes outta nowhere and tries to trip you up)

    EDIT: i tried it on multiple basses too to no avail. But my theory of the saddles was spot on. I moved the yellow saddle up a bit so the string was a bit "looser" and the cable recognized the slides this time. 100%.
