Duran Duran Bass Tabs

If you listen carefully to each live version, he doesn't play it exactly as per the original….he plays it about 90% the same but not exact.

Is the Playing With Uranium bass tab correct? I can't figure this one out, anyone got a recorded bass track for this?

I gave it a listen. I think he's actually playing this on a 5-string, but I don't have a 5-string so I've tabbed the higher octave 4-string equivalent instead. This is what I'm hearing:

Tabs:
G|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
A|-------------------------5---7---|-8---8-8-----8-------8---8---7-5-|
E|-5-----5-5---5-------5-----------|---------------------------------|
...1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &

G|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|-5-----5-5---5--/5-r-5---5---5---|---------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------|-5---5-5-r--5--------------------|
E|---------------------------------|---------------------8-------7---|
...1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &

G|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
A|---------------------5-------7---|-8---8-8--\----------------------|
E|-5-----5-5---5---5---------------|-------------1-------1---1---3/5-|
...1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &

G|---------------------------------|---------------------7-------7-\-|
D|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
A|---------------------5/7\5-------|-5-----5-5--/5---5-------5-------|
E|-3-----3-3---3---------------3---|---------------------------------|
...1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &

But I only spent a few minutes on it. I could be wrong (but I don't think I am ).

It's not John Taylor on bass - credits are to Warren Cuccurullo (also on guitar), although I've heard other studio musicians associated with the bass work on Pop Trash.

Their 2 weakest albums (in my opinion) - Medazzaland and Pop Trash - are without JT on bass. I don't think that's a coincidence.

(Edit - just checked and JT is credited as the bassist for some of the songs on Medazzaland - not ironically the good ones)
