    I'm looking for bass score or tab for "Don't Give Up".
    Can anyone help?

    There is a LOT of real good Peter Gabriel tunes not tabbed. Like BIg Time, Sledgehammer, Game without Frontiers. (at least not good tabs)

    Is there even a bass part on "Don't Give Up?" All I can remember of the tune is droning synthesizers, and I just saw the video two days ago.

    I do remember seeing a Sledgehammer tab a while back that I thought was pretty good, though.

    EDIT: Well, I feel foolish. Just gave it a listen on youtube. Ayuh, that's a bass line. How did I miss it?
     
  4. Is that bass or Chapman Stick? I always thought it was Stick on that track.
     
  5. If I remember correctly, it is a Music Man with a diaper as a mute under the strings near the bridge...

    There's even a solo and yeah, the sound is a diaper used as a mute.
