The bass line to A Forest is pretty simple. There isn't a whole lot to it.

To start with, we have the main guitar riff:

 

 

(Main Guitar Riff:)

E|>------------------ Eventually in the song, the drums come in.

B|>------------------ It's after two repeats of this guitar riff,

G|>------------------ AFTER the drums come in, that the Bass comes in

D|>---7----3---2---3-

A|>-0----0---0---0---

E|>------------------

 

 

And in the Bass comes: On only two strings (Yes, those are repeat signs.)

 

|| G A A G A A A C C A C C E F F E F F C D D C D D ||

||* A>-------------------3-3-----3-3-------------------3-5-5---3-5-5-- *||

||* E>-3-5-5---3-5-5---5-------5-------0-1-1---0-1-1------------------ *||

|| ||

 

This bass line repeats (over and over and over) until in the "peakish"

feeling in the bridge (you can hear where) it changes into this:

 

A>-------------------3-3-----------------------------5-5----------

E>---5-5-----------------------------1-1--------------------------

 

I've written it parallel to the main line to show the timing relationship

between the two. To end the song, just rapidly plung the A(fretted: E>-5-).

I'm not sure if there are any variations on the main bassline anywhere.

I didn't hear any striking or noticeable: Corrections always welcome.
