Help Hearing Notes in Verse (Rob Zombie)

Discussion in 'General Instruction [BG]' started by rydin4lifebass, Jun 4, 2014.


  1. I’m playing the song “Pussy Liquor” by Rob Zombie and I just have a quick question about the verses. The first part is repeated various times depending on the part in the song (sometimes repeated x3 and sometimes x5). My question is the part of |-1-4-4-|. This doesn’t sound quite right to me and I’ve seen it played as |-1-4-6-|. Can anyone confirm which way is correct or if neither are?

    Song:
    Verse Starts at 0:27

    Verse
    E|-1-|-1-1-|-1-1-|-1-4-4-|-1-|-1-1-|-1-1-|-1-4-4-| (x3 or x5)


    Verse End
    E|-1-|-1-1-|-1-1-|-1-4-4-|-1-|

    I can't help you with your question but got to say that's the greatest song name I've ever heard.

    The two main patterns are actually | 1 - 6 - 4 | and | 1 - 4 - 4 |
    with some little variations like |1-6-6-4| and |1-4-1-4|

    It's something like this:
    Pre-verse(bit with horns) (0:27)
    E|-1-|-1-1-|-1-1-|-1-4-4-|-1-|-1-1-|-1-1-|-1-6-4-|
    E|-1-|-1-1-|-1-1-|-1-4-4-|-1-|-1-1-|-1-1-|-1-6-6-4-|

    Singing starts:
    E|-1-|-1-1-|-1-1-|-1-6-4-|-1-|-1-1-|-1-1-|-1-4-4-|
    X however many times

    So long as you choose right from |1-6-4| and |1-4-4| it should sound fine
    youll have to work out where the variations are used for yourself

    (PS: I would use the A string instead of playing 6 on E)
