Dark Side

Discussion in 'General Instruction [BG]' started by keithconn, Nov 16, 2001.

  1. I ordered the bass book 'dark side of the moon' ... What do the rest of you think of learning this? I LOVE the album, and want to learn it anyway, but curious to hear what you think of the bass and how hard this is going to be ... I have already got Money down from Tabs that I found.

  2. Sounds great. Anything you take the time to learn will make you better. I would recommend making the effort while you're just starting on bass to try and work on your reading, though. I've put it off far too long and now that I am really working on it, I'm finding that the pull to tabs is quite distracting when I get frustrated with myself. Plus there's a lot more informatin in the notation than you'll find in tabs.

    Join me in my quest for acceptance into clan TABEVIL. :D

    I want in on this wonderfull clan ye all speak of called TabEvil. whats the member fees and initiation ritual :D
  6. Sounds great! I havnt seen that around. My band and I have talked about putting on a tribute show to either 'The Wall' or 'Dark Side', it would be great to have all the notation at a glance.

    I believe the personal requirements to get in are to have the ability to make snobby remarks and smart arse comments that do little other than annoy and cause arguments.

    ahh, see? It's all about perspective. THe requirements are to have a burning desire to help others shed their dependence on incomplete forms of notation, to help them better communicate with fellow musicians, and to truly understand musical communication.


    It's true - just ask my DURRLFRIEND :D
  8. lizard king....hope you can find about 11 guys to help you recreate the sound. My best friend did a DSOTM trubute for the 25 yr aniverary of the release. Actually it was about 8 guys and 1 gal. Was alot of work, think they worked on it like 7 months or so (they all have full time jobs).But was an excelent performance. Hope you guys can do it justice too.
  9. Ditto... A live performance of DSOTM now that would be cool. It would be interesting to see what kind of additions you would make to it if any?
  10. Hey, I just bought this today. Sounds pretty good to me.
  11. Thanks for the responses - you can get the book at bn.com ... it was like $15 or something. I am just completely sick of getting tabs and seeing a mistake, then I second guess the entire thing!

    The reason I am starting with this is because I was actually the drummer to the 'Trio' verson of DSOTM show. We did a couple of studio tapes and then a show at a local place. It worked out great - or perhaps I should say interesting ... Hahaha... That album has to be one of the all time best.

    Talk to you all later -
  12. I think I'm too dumb to be accepted into the clan :(

    I can't read tab. ;)
