What song are you currently/next "working on"?

Ja, grappig - ik woon in Hamburg. Misschien kan ik direct naar de tabs vragen??! :slight_smile:

Helaas vind ik geen Guitar Pro tabs, MIDI of Rocksmith files voor die track. Dat is dus ECHT exotisch!!!
Als je de tabs hebt, kan ik een video maken. Als niet en je wil ECHT de tabs voor die track – vraag @Alex_b. Hij is een expert!

PS Dit zijn der “regels” voor de videos: Play-along songs with synchronised tabs on Youtube

Blondie-in the flesh. Here i go with the low fruit again…

Cool. Gary Valentine was underrated, that was their only album he played bass on. Had an ok solo career after that.

Black Sabbath – In To the Void

It has such a recognizable lick.

Working on Sir Duke, by Stevie Wonder. I have most of it down at lower speed, but it’s the groove of the baseline that’s the real challenge. Those syncopated ghost notes are tricky to nail, but they add so much flavour.

Maybe this will help?

Been out of the game a bit, but I’ve got a couple I’m working on:

  • Flowers, by Miley Cirus. Really fun bassline.
  • Come On, Eileen, by Dexy’s Midnight Runners. Again, fun bassline.
  • I Can’t Tell You Why, by The Eagles. Because… The Eagles, duh. And I wanted something kinda slow and meaningful in my repertoire.

The bass line is so good it’s transformed my initial strong dislike of this song. The tiktok/reel/short every other video on the Internet having the hook as background music really turned me off of it until I started playing bass.

I love that flowers bassline. It’s just fun to play. And the come on Ellen song has been a goal for a long time. I can do it relatively ok, but i don’t have an acoustic, so it don’t sound real good. Nice choices!

OK, so I did as the forum said and reached out to other musicians. Now I have to learn these two before tuesday. Drop D, but that is all I know. :slight_smile:

Was listening to music and heard this song last night and couldn’t help but pick the bass up and learn it.

Are You In - Incubus

Basically got the whole thing down but definitely some cleaning and perfecting still to do.

The next project will probably be

Creatures (For A While) - 311

I’ve only been playing bass for a couple of weeks so this one might take a little bit for the harder parts

What a great line. I can only do it at 90% right now. But I’ll get there. It’s a little difficult to stay relaxed enough to play through all of it mistake free. So I’ll keep plugging away at it, i can hear its there

I’ve just started work on Floyd’s Money. A great riff that’s repeated…a lot. So not too difficult (so far). But it’s odd timing 7:4 with bits of 4:4 and 6:4 which is messing with my head a bit. Biggest difficulty with so many reps is knowing when to change. Figure I’ll need the vocals to cue the changes.

Man, that’s one complicated & long song! Looking forward to your cover video :slight_smile:

Might take a while, though, as I said, the bass line does a lot of repeating of that main opening riff. We’ll see :laughing: :rofl:

Rhythm and syncopation are something I struggle with a little so I like to challenge myself. Figure it’s the best way to learn!
