Song of the Day: Wicked Garden (STP)

This is the third track from Stone Temple Pilots' "Core" album (1992). I've had this CD for several years, but hardly ever listened to it--until one day when "Wicked Garden" came on the local token rock station (I'll gripe about crappy playlist stations later). The bass line grabbed me and held on, and I pretty much HAD to learn it right there and then.

Unfortunately, I was at work, and it's hard to play bass and drive. I scribbled a note and actually remembered my note once I got home. It's not a particularly demanding line--but like so much of Robert DeLeo's bass playing with STP, it sounds tougher than it really is--and it's just fun as hell to play.
