    I have been trying to figure out how to play Tequila, I have the chords but I can't figure out how to play the sax part. If anyone out there knows how to play any of it please post a reply. Gimme anything ya got, it'll at least give me something to work with.
    Thanks,

  3. Hey Violent Femme. I suggest you put on some platform shoes, and play it over and over and over while singing the melody. When you can do that, turn off the record and pick up your bass. Don't play with the record. There is too much harmony. If you figure it out from your head you should get pretty close.
     
  4. Maybe look at The Doors 'Break On Through' and tweak it a little? Ray Manzarek said that 'Break On Through' was based on 'Tequila', its just slightly different and has a different rhythm. Should be easy to change it to tequila.

    That song will stick in your head pretty much for ever.

    Unless you are fortunate enough to have a short memory. Of course, if CERTAIN PEOPLE keep bringing the subject up, then yes - it WILL "stick in your head pretty much forever".



    Hint, hint...;)
