    Any ideas on this one? I am trying to work it out, but the bassline is all over the place... :oops:

    The backing band have a great groove going on! Nice funky bass work going on there, gotta love the Wah/Synth effects too!

    Alex-
    Here's a blueprint for the verse; basically, a 2-bar vamp/groove-

    Rhythm-
    l1_&_2e&a_e&a4_&_l

    Notes, Bar_1-
    "1"= G (3rd fret "E"-string)
    "& of 1" = G (3rd fret "E"-string)
    "a of 2" = D (5th fret "A"-string)
    "& of 3" = E (7th fret "A"-string)
    "4" = D (5th fret "A"-string)
    "& of 4" = E (7th fret "A"-string)

    Notes, bar_2-
    "1" = A (5th fret "E"-string)
    "& of 1" = A (5th fret "E"-string)
    "a of 2" = D (5th fret "A"-string
    "& of 3" = E (7th fret "A"-string)
    "4" = G (5th fret "D"-string)
    "& of 4" = E (7th fret "A"-string)

    IMO, the 'tricky part is hitting that "D" note on the "a of 2" (& NOT on Beat 3).
    Too, how you play the feel is important...there's some ghosted stuff happenin' + some little slides(maybe) into the "E" notes.
