    I have been trying to figure out the obstinato part of the CTTE intro. The part after the first big bass scale ascension but before the main melody begins. Squire plays it 9 times. I have only gotten the first couple of notes. If anyone know how he plays it could you please post it.
    Thanks

    I'm glad you asked because the one tab I've found online is incorrect (some time ago so maybe it got corrected later). Fortunately, it is doubled by the guitar later making it easier to pick out. I used my Amazing Slow Downer program to figure it out and came up with this:



    |------------------------------------|
    |------------------------------------|
    |--7-------8------10-------12-------|
    |-----9-11---9-11----9-11-----9-11-|


    |-------------------------------------------
    |-------------------------------------------
    |------------11-------12-11-----14---------
    |--13-11-12----11-12--------12-----11-12--


    Makes an fantastic finger-switching excercise. Obviously you can try it on the lower frets on higher strings and incorporate open notes, but I've found this the most comfortable and when I watch Squire on the Symphonic Yes DVD, he seems to be playing it where I've notated it.
