...right now I'm noodling with the shuffle bass line from Beach Boys "California Saga"
the bit where it starts off
"'Have you ever been down Salinas way....where Steinbeck found the valley?....et etc...
and the bass line is dum-da-deeda-dum-da-deeda etc.
It is only 3 notes...and it's very simple..
but I can't find a good easy finger position to do it....
it seems to be a lot of work for 3 notes......
how would you play it?
Maybe this shouldn't be in the "tablature" department but:-
let me put it another way:-
Right now I am playing the aforementioned bass riff thusly:-
Key of A
First note= E string= A on 5th fret
Second note= A string= E on 7th fret
Third note= D string=F sharp on 4th fret.
Simple...but ergonomically awkward playing it that way.
Tried switching to playing "A" open then D-string second fret (E) then D-string= 4thfret ( F sharp).
But I don't like the way it sounds there........
This bass riff has been used in a lot of songs.....in the 1-4-5 chord mode.......but I guess it's just one of those "simple" riffs that are "awkward" in some places on the neck.....
