we all have our off days

even posting on the forums is a contribution of sorts, so no sweat and no need for any animosity

I'm sorry, but I thought you were ironic at the time. I guess I misunderstood then ..
Quote:
Sid, Land is not sounding so good to me. The introduction notes seem to be a bit different

Hugorj, I have listened again several times to Land, both intro and chorus, and I think I will not change the intro as I have it. If you have something else, I would like to hear it.

I thought perhaps that the second note was a Bb (A1) instead of an F (E3), but then the bass line would climb to the third note (C). What I hear in the song is the bass dropping down to get to the C.

Does John Taylor ever play a 5 sting bass?

So I can't find anything better that sounds more correct, so I am staying with what I have already posted for the intro.
Cheers.
I have worked on Land a bit more, so here is the tab so far (including what I posted earlier since it is now several pages back):

Next comes a flamenco guitar section, which I think is one time through the verse riff (instead of twice) then the prechorus. Comments and corrections welcome. Cheers.

Definitely, John Taylor is most complete bassist in activity
Hogorj,
I am sorry - I did not have time to play your verse interpretation for Land yet. I will not have time until perhaps Monday. cheers.
