I'll open by saying I enjoy the chorus to an extent (although it gets repetitive by the end of the first chorus), where you slowly scale around the fretboard.

But the verse and solo are a terrible experience on bass. Depending on where you are in the song, you're alternating between straight eighths on green and yellow or yellow and orange. But unlike most straight eighths, you play two measures of the same note before switching to the next, which makes this get old even faster. By the end of the first verse you're just so frustrated that the chorus does nothing to alleviate the tension, and it leads right into the solo (which goes into another verse) and there's really very few things that could make this an enjoyable experience at all and none of them are employed.

I actually closed my eyes at one point out of boredom, and found I didn't want to reopen them.

So yeah. It's pretty awful if you're a bassist, you probably shouldn't ever touch it.
