Please, check it Sid. I'm in doubt with last note

I am glad you are working on this song, Hugorj!

See page 84 of this thread for my thoughts on the root notes for Barbarella. I think the song is in D minor (D E F G A Bb C D). Note that this scale does not include F#.

I don't hear as many octave jumps as you do.

The transition notes for leaving the verse (main riff) to get to the chorus are G and Bb.

Maybe that helps? Cheers

Hugorj, I think you should tab this song. Gerr, Mari, and Ezzo all liked your verse riff. It must be good!

I think at the end of the riff, instead of playing F#s, the bass plays F, F(octave up), G, G(octave up). (F# would be right between these, so it would not be hard to hear an F# instead of F changing to G.)

Then the riff repeats until the last measure before starting the chorus. In this last measure, the notes are G and Bb.

Then the chorus.
Cheers.

Actually I want to make a “nice live” tab. I prefer to leave Barbarella for Danny or you
