Ok, here's the situation: I'm in a beginner band, and we're looking for a band to cover. A band that would be great for learning for all the instruments (bass, drums, guitar). Since there's no singer, i don't really care about the singing part, and the guitar part can be some really advanced (and hard) stuff too.
As for the style, it can be anything, except punk, metal (or anything hardcore). No slap bass either, cause i can't slap yet...
The most important thing is that it should be really musical, based on music theory, so there's an explanation for everything, it's not just "riffs". And it should groove too...
It may not have to be a the "best of" a certain band, it could be just a certain cd, like RHCP's Californication (the bass is not impossible on it :)
Once again, the purpose is to learn, to be tight as a band and to learn music theory, the goal is not to be a cover band(even though it may happen afterwards...)
Thanks in advance for the suggestions.
