Amazing Grace

Discussion in 'Technique [BG]' started by FreeSpirit, Dec 22, 2004.


  1. im bnot sure if this is the right forum so i'm sorry in advance. in the tab i found for amazing grace by victor wooten, one of the harmonics is <3.2> on the D string. would i play the harmonic on the 3rd fret (F) then do a harmonic on the 2nd fret(E) fast right after it before going on or what?

    thanks, kyle

    I think it's supposed to mean that you "fret" the harmonic node slightly above the 3rd fret, .2 would translate into 1/5th of the space between 3rd and 4th fret.

    I prefer Chris Squire's version.

  7. i actually don't have that copy of bass player. i used mxtabs.et and got a copy from there. the only problem is i am still having probels playing the 3<5><5> at the same time and make it sond decent. but tat comes with time.
