Close to the Edge The Solid Time of Change

Discussion in 'General Instruction [BG]' started by ProgThom, Oct 19, 2005.

  1. Ik've been trying to learn to play bits of Close To The Edge by Yes lately, and have hit a dead end with the bassline played during The Solid Time of Change. I have looked at the basstab for it, and the 'yelp' part of the bass line is said to be played on frets 12 and 14 on the G string, and there is some sort of bending to be done. I have tried to bend the strings while playing it, but never get the cporrect sound. Anyone got any tips?
