Formaula One Theme - BBC

Discussion in 'Tablature and Notation [BG]' started by Warlock, Mar 31, 2004.


  1. :bag: The BBC's old theme for Formula 1 racing was a bass riff from a Fleetwood Mac tune. Can anoyone remember the name of the song or even better the tab for the riff.

    Thanks from a bedroom bassist. :D

    I have know idea but I just wanted to say that I'm a HUGE F-1 fan but my freaking cable provider doesn't carry the speed channel.

    It's "The Chain" from the album Rumours - very effective line but very simple - pretty easy to figure out,starting from an open A.
     
  4. Thanks Bruce and I think it's on the BassTab archive - so some new playing about tonight. In the UK F-1 is now broken by adverts - I just hate adverts. The BBC is advert free and great. Murray Walker's retirement has caused a little loss of sparkle too. Off at a tangent sorry.

    Still, at least you get F-1.

    All I get here is NASCAR. And that doesn't interest me one bit.

    I think the tab of the Chain in archive is way wrong. Drop C?

    It sounds normal when i play it in standard tuning.
     
  7. Great, thanks for this. Funny I had a similar problem with Rapper's Delight on bass tab (to recall but one) as I called to my wife 'what does this sound like?' 'S**t she replied' Nothing changes with women :D
    I'll have a bash this evening. Thanks again.
