Bass Licks/Variations

Postby pinkfloyd188 » Sat Nov 04, 2006 7:16 pm

k i was pokin around the forums and i saw a few mentions that there aren't enough bass tabs on the site, so i decided to *try* and help you starting bassists out.

let it be known i've only been playing bass for 2 years, i don't consider myself good at all, but feel free to correct/comment at some tabs.

i play a 6 string dean edge bass, so some tabs are in that format.

Are you sure that' riff's the bass part? That's the riff I always use as the intro. Also if that's Phil's part what does Jerry play as the intro?

Phil does play that, altough that might not be exact, and you know Phil, he's always changing it up.

the verse/main theme of Dancin' In The Streets isn't |A///|D///|, it's |A///|Em///|
