Cephalic Carnage’s Nick Schendzielos: “Ohrwurm” Bass Playalong Video and Lesson

Here’s one for the metalheads!

Nick Schendzielos of Cephalic Carnage made this incredible playalong of the group’s bass-heavy song “Ohrwurm,” from their album Misled by Certainty.

“I had a lot of “fun” making this video,” Schendzielos wrote. “I wanted to increase the watchability for musicians and non-musicians alike, so I tried out some new things like Picture in Picture, and Picture in Picture in Picture, and comedy? I also really wanted to incorporate some “SFW” scenes from the beautiful video for Ohrwurm done by Michael Panduro, which I think compliments the bass video quite well.”

Schendzielos, who also plays bass for the extreme metal outfit Job for a Cowboy, created a lesson video on how to play the intro for those brave enough to attempt learning the song. Beware, this one is just as “interesting.”

    what’s with the fart noise at 1:20?

  3. @1:20, is that note a flatulent fifth?

  4. Its actually a major 6th not a minor 3rd. He is playing a B not a Bye. If he is in the key of D that is. It would be a M3rd if he is claiming it is in the key of G. None the less Bye was never played.

  5. Dear god I hope that stache was for Movember.

  6. fucking awesome man !!!!!!!!
