Come On, Come Over

Discussion in 'General Instruction [BG]' started by Microbass, May 7, 2003.


  1. Hi all.

    The 'intro' lick to this song, I do not have either the skill or time to figure this out, so I made up a nice easy, fast and in time lick.

    Just wondering if I have it in the right key?
    The riff that I am talking about is at 2 sec, just after the sax intro...


    I'm making a guess that the riff is in G?

    thx!

    :smug:

    The verse is in C, the chorus in D.

    The notes to the verse riff are:

    (high) Bb Bb B C Eb C
    (low) Eb F F# G C C

    On the last bar of the verse, there's a stop on beat 1, then the horns come in, then he goes C C# D to get into the chorus, in D.

    As for the funky line he plays on the chorus, well, I can't play it...

    Me, either.
    That opening is notated in one of those recent Jaco "Songbooks".

    (I think).

    Wow, that's really not right. :eek: Totally ignoring all the mistakes in bar one... where in the hell did he get F Eb C for the climb down in bar 2?? That should be painfully obvious to anyone with ears that those are the wrong notes.
     
  7. here's what I've got for the intro- corrections welcome-


    G-
    D------------------------------------8------------------
    A-10-10-10-10-10-10--9/10-----9/8--6------------
    E--------------------------------------------------8-6---3-2-1

    it's difficult to tell if there are any muted notes in the G F# F rundown at the end.
     
  8. wow, awesome. I got the right key! woot!!

    Thanks much Turtle!!!

    I was gunna do this for my music assessment today, but I couldn't get the chorus down very well (ive only had since tuesday to learn i guess...) so I'm just going to play My Generation. :cool:

    Thanks all! I WILL finish this song eventually....:)

    I play the first measure like that, but I hear a 16th note octave before the G and F# during the last part of the figure, so the last measure is:


    G-----------
    D--5----4---
    A-------------
    E----3-----2--1

    sixteenth note, dotted eighth, sixteenth note, dotted eighth, staccato quarter

    -or-

    1 e, 2 e, 3
     
  10. Thanks all!

    Like I said, I'm going to continue learning this...

    I got to school for the assessment, and I was going to play My generation, but the CD i had brought didnt work on their CD player, so I played Come On Come Over.

    I played it the best I ever had, except the chorus, first time around I messed the C part, then the next time I messed up the 'interlued'. I got a B overall. Sounds good to me!
