    Recommendations: Tracks with series of bass hammer-ons and pull-offs

    More specifically, a mix of repeated notes and h-o's/p-o's, creating a "flowing" type of pattern. I always love when tracks do that. Examples:

    Broken Social Scene — "Swimmers" (it's pretty obvious early on)

    Mogwai — "Yes I am a Long Way from Home" (esp. in places like 1:32-1:40)

    Tortoise — "Tin Cans and Twine" (esp. in places like 2:08-2:24)

    I know this is specific, but that's the way I want it. And I'd rather not get a bunch of replies like, "I'm not sure, but if you like Mogwai, you might like [insert list of post-rock bands]." I'm not expecting many replies anyway.

    Thanks in advance.

    Okay, these are some very different genres, but here's what first came to my mind when thinking of bass hammer on/pull offs.

    Metallica - The God That Failed

    Opeth - Windowpane

    Fourplay - Bali Run

    KMFDM - Strut (Disco Balls Remix)

    Probably not what you're looking for, except maybe the Opeth song, but hey, who knows?
    It's got your lighter. And that missing sock.

    One more - can't believe I forgot about this, these guys are one of my favorite bands! It's mostly in the first part just after the intro, then it comes back with the bass by itself at the end.

    Atheist - Samba Briza
