jjp... you're not the first to inquire about bass tabs here, but unfortunately the answer is pretty much always the same. There really aren't any because Phil never plays the same thing twice. The best thing you can do, in my opinion, is learn the signature licks, and then just the song structure. As long as you know the chords and a few scales and arpeggios on the bass you'll have plenty to keep yourself busy. My other advice would be to keep things moving at all times.

Yeah, Lunchbox knows my standard rant! :lol:

The trouble with tabs is that they tell you only What Notes To Play, which is really about 20% of what you need to know to play at all like Phil.

That's why I tend to ask Rusty specific questions, e.g. how do you play this riff? What do you do for this section of song X? Can you go over modes... again?

If you have questions about a certain part of Broken Arrow we're all happy to help.

Cheers!
