Post Playing Racer X on Bass
I am thinking about getting a Bass to do some Backing Tracks and was just wondering if anybody can play John's Riffs. If its not too hard i think it would be cool to learn Dangerous Love

For the most part, the bass on a good majority of Racer X stuff won't kill you. Not until you get to Scarified will you have any difficulties. Even then, with a little practice, you should be able to handle it (if you are a above average guitar player). I was almost able to play Scarified on my daughter's bass, but it proved to be too hard. The reason being it's a right handed bass & I was playing it upside-down. Mind you, I almost had it. But in the end, I thought, is it really worth it? Back to guitar.

Actually I like bass played with pick, no more than fingers, but it sounds totally different.

Heavy metal bands got a more "edgy" sound with bass players using picks, like Megadeth or, more classical, Accept.

I agree....TOTALLY depends on the sound you want. John plays with a pick on some stuff.

I use a pick for playing bass, but that´s cuz I´m mainly a guitar player. And I like the sound better for most stuff. I do play with my fingers sometimes. When you´re playing some fast licks, sometimes it´s easier with your fingers, cuz there´s more space between the strings than with a guitar
