Classic 80s Song for Bass Players

Posts: 1103
Two part thread. First, I totally suck at searching for tabs (Johnny can attest to this), but I've searched and searched, then prayed and searched… But can't find Big Country's In a Big Country. What a shame… Great song, great band.

Second, and the real point to this thread… Please make recommendations to classic 1980s songs, where the bass lines are fun (and challenging) to play. If there's tabs to your recommendation (linky link?) even better!

What say you BBT?

I have an Information Society song on my to-do list. Think I'll add Big Country to it as well, since Mark got me thinking about it.

From what I see, Blondie tabs are updated. Bigbass have “a rose by any name” (new music). Good work

It has been a couple of years since I looked, but I was also unable to find a tab of In A Big Country. So I second the motion for a tab of this song.

Secondly, I think you'll want a chorus pedal for this one IamMark.
