    Thats the VH song where the bassline is just repeating an E right?

    :bag:
     
  3. I learned it when I was 12 on guitar and bass, and learned the solo proper at 15. And no, at the time I didn't understand what was going on musically and I don't think Eddie did either. :spit:

    :D
     
  4. I'm still stuck on the intro..... :D

    Back in the day when my highlight was a Nautilus workout followed by about 3 hours of pinball-
    Mt 2 idiot friends/running mates would play this tune on the Juke Box non-stop...just to piss me off.

    And they would always ask. "Can you play this, Jim"? or "Funky enough for you, Jim"?


    (Fun times!).

    I'm still trying to figure that song out. Since I made the switch from 4 string to 5 string five years ago I'm really lost. :meh:
