A stark melody strung round minor chords begins "Limp," and the listener is drawn in to what he or she may think is a downcast, blusey ballad. Yet, following this brief introduction, a strong rhythm quickly emerges and the song becomes something else entirely. Crossing jazz with a funky rock pattern, the rhythm surges with a sense of defiance that Fiona Apple has made a trademark. Aggressive and taking no prisoners, Apple lays her emotions out into the air with a brilliant candor. It's inappropriate to call this a simple break-up song, as the lyrics paint an accurate portrait of recrimination and resolution. The song shifts back into the opening, soft passage and this allows the song to breathe more like a mini-suite. Drummers get ready for an honest to goodness drum solo where 2 drum parts are playing. Don't worry I only charted one.

Having just played Fast As You Can for the first time on bass and getting my ass kicked, it was refreshing to play this super fun bass part right after that. Woo! Best and most fun custom bass part I've played in a while. Thanks!

now I feel good about spending the extra time revising the bass part I got back. It wasn't entirely correct so I did it myself and you just vindicated my effort. People do actually play bass :D

I play both expert guitar and bass regularly, depending on my mood and the song itself. A groovy or interesting bass part is definitely preferred by me when compared to some nutty testosterone-fueled rapid-fire strum-bar-breaking guitar shredfest. So I appreciate that extra effort!
