    Alright weve all heard the song Brown Eyed Girl, and you know that part where its just the bass and drums? well i like it but its kinda boring and i wanted to know if you guys had any ideas of something else that i could do at one of our gigs that sounds better. So if you have ne ideas let me know man.

    If you tab it out thatd be a bonus :D



    Thanks.

    Improvise a solo, nod at the band when you are done.

    Drum solo? Just kidding, I can't remember the recorded part, but I would just "walk a line" if I wanted to spice up the part.

    I regularly stand with a band that actually call out "BASS SOLO" in that part. I started off ignoring the call and just playing the standard line, but they used to give me a hard time afterwards. They weren't happy until I started slapping. I think it sounds awful but they're the ones with the cheque book..............

    To add to this...SLAP the HELL out of your BASS type SOLO!
    "Brown eyed Girl" has been respectfully played for too long by too many cover bands.

    Please render this tired cover unrecognizeable by filling it up with lots of SLAP BASS.
