    I have found the tab for the bass part, but I would like to play the more interesting line of the organ on my 4 string bass.

    My ear isn't good enough yet to transcribe it (yet) if anyone would like to help me out I think it will sound pretty cool

    Thanks,
    Josh

    The Intro into the "Roll baby Roll" part would be great

    Man, I'm sorry, but I think I have a different version because I can't hear an organ in there. The one I'm listening to just has the bass & guitar doubling that A-C-E-F# riff, with the piano and harmonica wailing away.

    maybe it was a piano, I thought Manzerek played an organ. The harmonica and piano are the interesting parts in the song in my opinion

    are you listening to a live version? With no full time bass player the bass lines were done on keyboards for the most part which may be causing some confusion.

    I have the Doors full songbook at home. I can look it up and see what's going on ;)
