    There is a song "If You're Gonna Leave" by Raul Midon that has a flamenco or Spanish guitar type run that I've been struggling with. The run is about 10 notes, just past the middle of the song. I believe the song is in Bm. I want to play this run on bass (obviously on a lower register than the guitar). Can you tell me the notes in this run, what string and fret to start on and if the song is in Bm.

    Hi, I have not heard the song you mentioned but I do know there is a very good flamenco type of tutorial for bass on youtube by Josh F. I am excited to learn the technique that Josh teaches as it really does sound like flamenco. I know that is not directly related to your question but just thought I would throw this out there.
