  1. Anyone know the bass tab or where i can get the tab for Pick up the pieces? i havent found the bass line anywhere and its really funky.. thanx
     
  2. its in a issue of bass player, i don't know which month but i think fieldy was on the cover
    its pretty easy if you listen closely the bass isn't doing a ton, its being perfect, i think it goes from C to F maybe a Bb in there its mostly octaves and flat sevens excepy for a little cromatic walk and a added hammer on latter in the song to drive it a little more

    Hey, Lizard King. I don't wanna sound facetious, but if you can do anything, why don't you try to learn the tune by ear?

    It's a very simple rif :


    ------5---3--5-|-----5-3--
    -----------------|-----------
    3---------------|3---------
    -----------------|-------------

    (this pattern is also used in the other chords)

    there's also a variation somewhere but I have to listen to the song cause I don't remember rihght now
