Great bassline, can't seem to play it entirely by ear though. Anyone feel like tabbing it correctly or posting/directing me to a video? Thanks!!

Haha, I can play it, just can't use the tab software, it's based on the #C scale, I'll give it a go on my laptop, iPads a pain in the butt

Hey Marko, if you are interested, this might help:

In the “Reply to this thread” box below, click on the bass clef. Then copy and paste that staff into your word processor. (I use Open Office but I think Word would work as well.)

Select all the text and set font and size to Courier New, 10 points. (This font keeps everything formatted and spaced correctly. Other fonts don't!)

This is optional: I like to divide the staff into measures using 8 or 16 dashes per measure; use the vertical bar (above the enter key on my keyboard) for measure markers. I also try to indicate timing in the line below the staff. I use + marks on the beats; a more helpful indicator is how Loudlon does it: 1&2&&4& beneath each measure.

Copy and paste to get a full-page-width staff, then save it.

To tab, open this up, save it under a new name (e.g. the name of the song being tabbed) and replace dashes with fretting positions as appropriate.

Getting the template is a bit of effort, but once you've got it, noting down the fretting is pretty straight-forward.

Cheers.

edit: The smiley face in the counting is an automatic and unfortunate formatting consequence of being able to emoticons in postings. It should be a three.

We are making the tabbing easier, we'll be adding some of these buttons to the submit tabs section too, so you'll get templates out of the box on the site.

I'm sorry about this, it's something that I should've done ages ago.

That's the good thing about being a single guy with nothing to do on a Saturday night – I have plenty of time to sit and bang out some tabs.

Of course the bad thing about being a single guy with nothing to do on a Saturday night is, y'know, being a single guy with nothing to do on a Saturday night LOL
