  1. Does anyone have the definitive riff for the "roll" that's used during the verse? It's mostly done after going down to the C then back up to the D.

    I used to play this when it first came out - I think you mean the part that is all fast 16th notes played with a pick:
    |--------77--77--|
    |----------57--57|
    |55555555--------|
    |----------------|

    I probably cheated and played it something like:
    |--------7---7---|
    |----------57--57|
    |5---5-----------|
    |----------------|

    I did not find that C note.
    If you are talking about the same riff as RoadRanger mentioned, then, here is my (only) transcription of that bass part.

    The "C" isn't in the first verse, only the following one(s).

  6. Thanks. That's just about what I play except I repeat the fingering pattern from the D string (5 7) on the G string.

    I've heard C major at 2:09, around 2:41, 4:08, 5:22, 5:31, etc...
    Around 5:19, the bass has a run D - F# - A - B(close to C but not C) - A - F# - E
    What I means, the bass run does not include C.
    But I have already overused my invitation in this thread.


    I'm always using Guitar Pro6.

  8. Really under-rated bass player- he has some great lines such as this and Bounty Hunter!
