Jamiroquai — Music Of The Mind (ver 2) bass tabs

"Music of the Mind" — Jamiroquai bass tab

transcribed by Jimmy C email= jimmy_c15@hotmail.com

As with all of Stu's bass lines, he improvises a lot, so much that there is
almost no one "basic line". Therefore with this great song I have just
transcibed what i see to be the basic line, hopefully presenting you with a
starting point from which you can work out all of stu's variations and/or
hopefully come up with some of your own!! There are three main sections in
this song.
Basic tab conventions
*= dead note p= pull off
h= hammer on

The Intro

The intro line has four main chords, and lot's of variations of these four
main chords can be played. In this stu does a lot of bends(up), so i have
bracketted the notes that he bends, however this does not mean that he bends
these notes every time!! He also often pulls on to the notes i have
bracketted, from the fret immediately after the note eg pull off the 5th
fret to the 4th fret. This line has so many variations yet i can't be
bothered writing them all out!

The Fast Section

After the intro the song drops into a much faster paced section, and stu's
line provides endless opportunities for variations! Once again i've just
transcribed the "basic line". In about the middle of this section there is a
sort of break, where the basic chords above are played and then it drops
back into the fast paced section, where stu plays a very fast variation,
which i've tabbed what i think he plays (bit of a challenge). Each bar is
repeated, and

The End Section

After the fast section the song goes into a new section with the bass
running up and down some scale (some major scale variation i think...i am
weak on theory haha). This can be varied a lot, including playing fast
triplets on some of the notes like stu does.
