Bob Marley — Walk The Proud Land (ver 2) bass tabs

  Rate this tab:







Artist: Bob Marley
Song: Walk The Proud Land
Album: Talkin' Blues
Tabbed By: Rahmin Pavlovic (bassist@insite—out.com)

The main bassline for the tune goes like:

G——————————————————————————————————
D——————————————————————————————————
A—7—57—57——————————7—57—57—————————
E—————————5(5)5(5)—————————5(5)5(5)

It's a simple reggae riff and it's real easy to vary. The notes in
parenthesis are optional (bom, ba—bom bom vs. bom, bom). The 57—57 is
sometimes left out, and that's usually when you'd quadrouple up on the E(5).
Drop/fill notes out/in as the groove takes you.

The tune drops into the key of B every now and then for a couple rounds:

G——————————————————————————————————
D——————————————————————————————————
A——————————————————————————————————
E—7—57—57—0(0)0(0)—7—57—57—0(0)0(0)

..but it kinda sounds like he's using a 5—string:

G——————————————————————————————————
D——————————————————————————————————
A——————————————————————————————————
E—7—57—57——————————7—57—57—————————
B—————————5—3—5(5)—————————5—3—5(5)

I don't have a 5—string, so I play the 1st variation on the 2nd part.
