    .. You want tabs for it or something o_0? Just figure it out man, don't latch on tabs forever.

    Yes, that is usually why people post in the "Tablature" forum. And I would just figure it out, but I suck.

    So, where have you looked? That saves people treading the same ground you've already trawled. Also, you could give some more details of the recording you're using as a reference - Don't Leave Me This Way has been covered by a number of different artists and I wouldn't be suprised if Ms Houston herself might have done a couple of different versions; see the All Music Guide for details.

    You could even post a tab of what you think the bassline is and then marvel as others help you improve it!

    This song was originally performed by Harold Melvin and the Blues Note band. There is information on the song under there name for notation anyway.

    A bit unexpected.

    Thank you though, very much so. Also, sorry for sounding like an ass in the earlier posts.

    I've seen those damn paranthesis around fret numbers on Tab a lot but cannot figure out what it means (tapping with right hand, sustain note, etc....)

    Could please enlighten me?
