Thanks for checking the tab, Mari7. I have been working on other things (Graceless by The National - a cool song requested by Lrawrsaur - and I Had A Love by Blue Angel - the first band Cyndi Lauper recorded with; I have the vinyl!) but I will try to get back to Marco Polo this week. I do really like the song, though I really can't hear what the bass is doing.

(Check out Graceless and I Had A Love; you can find them on YouTube). cheers

The bass in this song is hidden behind the percussion.

Si…about 400. It was how a person bought music before CDs, before mp3s….. I still have most of the albums I bought, but a sad story is that while my records were stored at a friend's house, some disappeared: UB40 Present Arms, UB40 Signing Off, New Order Movement, The Avengers (pink album)… very sad

Very, very sad Sid. I don't have any vinyl. But I really like their sound, because they cause a good ambiance, is the music of the good old days.

Here is a little more for Marco Polo. So everything is in the same place, I post here the part I posted earlier plus the new parts - riffs 3 and 4. In riff 3, I try stay out of the way of the oud, where he plays the descending three note phrase in the odd numbered measures. Let me know what you think of this. cheers.
