    Ok, wasn't sure where to post this so I went here :p I just went and learned 7 Nation Army by ear, and it sounds right, but I don't quite trust myself yet so I'm asking lol. What I got for the main riff is E E G E D C B and then theres that little E E G E D C D C B. This is the first song I've by ear so yeses, noes tips on learning by ear, anything is appreciated :)

    Yep, you got it. The only other part of the song is the G to A build up between the verse and chorus.

    No, that's definitely a little off. Besides, I don't like tabs :p Pain in the ass imo. Much rather read sheet music.

    The only problem here is it's not a bassline.

    It's a guitar with an octave effect.

    But let me ask you this, when a keyboard player plays a bassline with his/her left hand... is it still a bassline? Yup. Same goes for a guitar playing a bassline, the octave effect puts it in the bass register so...

    Yes it is a bassline. Just like the bassline on Red House by Jimi. Played on a guitar but still a bassline.
