    Pretty much the same line throughout the song with minor variations and fills. I have it pretty close but I'm hoping one of you more experienced players can nail it perfectly.



    Thank you for any help!

    Utilizing the open E string, the 5th and 7th frets of the A string and the 5th fret of the D string you should be able to play 99% of the bass parts performed in that track.

    The main riff sounds like

    ------------
    ----------5-
    777--5777-7
    ----0-------

    He alternates between the 7th fret and the 5th fret of the A string for the first note of the phrase, so feel alternate as your heart sees fit.

    BTW, their guitarist Isaiah's dad is a member of this forum. Met him at the SD get together a while ago, real nice guy.

    I was thinking more:

    -----------------------------
    -----------------5----------
    -/7---5-7-7-7---7-5-----
    ----0-------------------7---
