I saw this song requested and always liked the

bassline so I figured i'd post it!

 

It's in standard tuning (EADG). Another great bassline

by John Paul Jones. It's pretty straightforward except

that there ALOT of little articulations (especially in

the slides) that are great practice to learn and really

add alot to the song. Most of what you can learn from

someone else's basslines comes from learning all the

little "licks" and "articulations" that the great ones

are masters of. Therefore, i've tried to notate as best

I can alot of the little things he does. Good Luck!
