I hear more and more Cajun music and would like to play the bass parts of it.
That's why I am looking for Cajun bass tabs / sheet music, DVD's, etc.
Germany in this respect is a desert and I hope that you, (esp.) my Canadian, US- "fellows" can help.
I have been searching the same kind of material to no avail except for the zydeco section in the book The Bassist's Bible devoted to zydeco (last entry, I think). By listening to lots of songs, I have found that, in general, you can use R&B, R'n'R and Country music lines in order to play a zydeco song. You can also see videos like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWnBZg-aJyg or simply entering zydeco bass on YouTube. Here's a great source of chord changes for lots of zydeco songs: http://cajunzydeco.net/CajunGuitar/S...d_Chord_Charts
If it helps, most Zydeco I've run across is based on the pentatonic major scale, and most of the rest on the pentatonic minor. Like pacvs says the lines are very similar to ones from blues, r&b, country and rock. The big difference is in the drumbeats and the way the bass plays off of them. Listening and playing along with the music is the best way to learn. Good to see interest in this music from so far afield!
Boldly shooting my mouth off on the internet since 1994.
