    Can someone here settle an argument I am having with another bassist? I am looking for tabs / notation to the chorus of Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper so I can show him the way I play it is as it is recorded.

    Thanks in advance!

    I can ask Bill ( The guy who wrote it) if he would mind emailing me a transcription, though I doubt it will be tabbed.

    Cyndi Lauper & Rob Hyman wrote this. Hyman is/was in a band called the Hooters.

    They wrote the bass lines? You mean it wasn't her Music Director/bassist William Wittman? lol :rolleyes:

    I doubt it. It's a synth bass, probably played by Rob Hyman.

    google this and you'll find the sheet music: TIME AFTER TIME - davidpolinski.de

    What's the specific question? It's a rather simple bass part.

    And you are correct. Rob Hyman.

    Thanks for the help. The transcription is perfect to settle the dispute (matches how I play it exactly).

    Big Hooters fan, too.

    actually, no

    the last note of the Am run in bar 2 there (not counting the pickup partial bar) should be a G, not an A

    and yes, Rob wrote and played it.
    I programmed the drum machine (before we added Anton over it)

    lots of crossed lines of labour there!

    also Rob's timeline in that article is a touch misleading.
    The basic Juno "organ" idea was laid down as a ref with the drum machine.
    The we added the real drums and the "real" pad synths went on first (there is also a Memory Moog with the Juno), then the bass synth, and then the B-verse synth 'horns' (on a Prophet V by Peter Wood)
    Then vocals.
    The guitar was a last minute 'extra' idea that didn't really get down until we had moved upstairs to mix.
    It's not on any of the rough mixes.
    we did do a rough pass of a guitar idea that was much busier arpeggios, when we were still in Studio B.
    I click that 3's against 4's arpeggio in under the solo section, and a bit more in the end...
