    I went to a bass tab site and printed it out but to me it didn't seem right. Can some one help me? That's my favorite song. :bassist:
     
  2. its an E blues rock thing...

    most of the time just jam on these (rough sketch)

    G-----------------------------------
    D-----------------------------------
    A7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 5 6 :repeat
    E------------------------------------
    and add things like
    G-----------------------------------
    D-----------------------------------
    A7 7 ------------ 7 7 7 7 7 7 5 6--
    E----5 5 6 6 7 7-------------------
    or
    G-----------------------------------
    D-----------------------------------
    A7 7 - 7 7 7 5 7 7 5 7 7 ---5 6---
    E----0--------------------7 7------
    and stuff like that

    and then just go up the
    ah...what the hell...just go to powertabs.net and download the tab and play it in midi with the power-tab.net program.
    But please do pay attention to the changes. The tab cleverly gives the vocal cues in the guitar section of the tab.
     
  3. Actually if you learn the chords then check out the live versions he did with the band of gypsies and you will see a much more solid groovin bass line (not that jimi's wasnt groovin on this one, but he's jimi and doesnt like repitition) from our friend buddy.

    You may want to check out the Electric Ladyland DVD (you can get it at Amazon), that's Jack Casady on bass (its mispelled on the album.) He's playing along as they talk about the recording session with the recording engineer.
