"Answers"

by Goldfinger

off their self-titled album

 

The Main riff is used for the intro, the verse, and all but the last chorus.

The pre-chorus is quite simple, then it goes to chorus (i.e. Main riff again).

After the first chorus there is a tiny bass solo, then the bass doesn't get

cool again until the horn solo and then the pre-chorus and bridge chorus.

 

All in all quite a simple song, played with a pick and a syncopated rhythm.

Simon Williams plays his bass with a deeper, fuller sound, if you'd like to

emulate with tone controls.

 

Main riff:

 

G: ----------------------------------------------

D: ----------------------------------------------

A: --5-5-----5--------------5-5-----5--------

E: --------------5-5-----5--------------3-3--

 

G: ----------------------------------------------

D: ----------------------------------------------

A: ------5-5-----5-------------5-5-----5------

E: ---3-------------5-5-----5-------------6-6--

 

Pre-chorus:

 

G: ----------------------------------------------

D: --------------------------------5----7-------

A: ---3---5-------------3----5-----------------

E: ------------3----5---------------------------

 

Miniature bass solo after 1st chorus:

 

G: ----------------------------------------------

D: ----------------------------------------------

A: --0--8--10-10-10-10-10--8--7-----------

E: -------------------------------------9--------

 

Horn solo:

 

G: ----------------------------------------------

D: ----------------------------------------------

A: --5-5---5--7--8-----5-5----5--7--8-------

E: ----------------------------------------------

 

G: ----------------------------------------------

D: ----------------------------------------------

A: -----------------------------------4----------

E: --3--3---3--5--6---5-5--5--7--------------

 

Repeats twice, then decorates thus:

 

G: --------------------0-----------------------0----

D: -0-0-0-0---2--3------3--0-0-0-0--2-3-----3-

A: --------------------------------------------------

E: --------------------------------------------------

 

G: ----------------------------------------------

D: ----------------------------------------(0)--

A: ------------0-1-3-1---0-0-0-0---2-4-5--4-

E: --3-3-3-3-----------------------------------

 

Plays the decorated version twice also, then goes to pre-chorus.

You may find it easier to play 0 on the D string instead of 5 on

the A string in the last decoration.

 

Ending chorus:

 

G: ---------------2------------------------------

D: --2--4------------5--4--2--4---------------

A: ---------2------------------------------------

E: ----------------------------------------------

 

G: ---------------2------------5--4-------------

D: --2--4-------------5--4---------------------

A: ---------2------------------------------------

E: ----------------------------------------------

 

Plays the entire riff twice, then slides down to end on:

 

G: ----------------------------------------------

D: --2-~~~~----------------------------------

A: ----------------------------------------------

E: ----------------------------------------------

(Played with vibrato)

 

If you wonder what letter tunings I was using when I tabbed this (i.e. L, G,

A, B) or understand that I'm the coolest bassist you'll ever know, you can
