    (part I'm talking about is at 0:05 and again at 0:11)

    How do I do it? I'm tabbing this song on Guitar Pro and will most certainly share it when I'm done. Insane basslines all the way through.
  2. I didn't listen to the whole tune but what I heard sounds pretty repetitive ..Once you get the main groove (theme) down it shouldn't be too difficult.. I have no idea how to go about tabbing it though. I would just do the notation!

    I know that didn't help at all..:) well good luck!!

    You need to work backwards The two Four on the drums comes in Solid. That will give you one.

    That staggered rhythm will always 3 of a rhythm you normally hear in pairs of 2 repeated… IE a Dotted 1/8 = 1/8 plus a 1/6. Or 3/16 if you will.

    Best of luck! You'll earn coming up with this.

    Do some work submit you ideas I'll help but I'not gonna feed you the answer….:bassist:

    Get amazing slow downer…. it will help.

    Cool…personally I'd use ties to show beat three in the measures. WAY easier to read.
