    So I've been listening to the new John Legend CD lately and the song PDA is always stuck in my head. I'm a rock-oriented player and I find that figuring out rock basslines is much easier for me than R&B/funk/soul lines. The fills are so much more tighly spaced in R&B and I think I have a problem distinguishing quick notes a half step apart. It's pretty frustrating sometimes.

    Can anybody help me out on this one? I know it's in E, then it goes to B. Even the basic chord progression would help a lot.

    This is the style of music I'd like to progress to but it's really unfamiliar territory when it comes to recognzing patterns and such.

    I can send one of my good-eared brothers a clip if needed. Thanks!

    Bumping this up from the grave to see if anybody has some tabs or something for it.
     
  3. here is the gist:

    *m after the fret number means MUTE it straight after you play for a very short note
    *listen for exact timing and figure out the tight funk fills yourself :p
