    That's a great song. Still sounds as quirky now as when it first came out.

    I don't have the tab, but I just listened to the song, and the bass line seems pretty straightforward. Other than some embellishments (like during the Ah-oh-eh-oh lyric),
    there are basically two riffs. I don't have my bass handy, but perhaps it's R-3rd-5th, then 5th repeated for the first riff?. The other riff is during the lyric "Something tells me my lucky number..." which sound like a different bass note for each word, which is probably a fairly easy scale.

    If I have time, I'll try it out tonight. But you may be able to figure most of it out yourself. Sorry if that's not much help for the moment.

    Hi Again. So, I figured out Lucky Number, and have it down pretty well. It's a bit late to type the hardcopy notes to the computer at the moment. Hopefully, you can wait another day or two. It was my first TAB written from scratch, and I got to learn how to play the song to boot - so that was fun.

    I'm interested in why you're interested in this song. I suspect not many Lene fans out there. Great vocal range. The Stateless album, where this came from was my favorite, but recently I bought a greatest hits collection and heard Savages for the first time, which is a new favorite.

  5. thanks for replying hedgehog,

    i just love that bassline it sounds cool plus abit of a solo. i'm still learning the basics of bass and am listening out for inspiration, i've got motorheads 'stay clean' solo almost sussed & i'm really into hawkwind but finding any tabs for their more obscure stuff is proving a challenge!
    i can read tabs ok but anything more complex goes over my head, if you could work out the tab for lucky number that'd great.

    cheers

    jon

    ps i'll check out 'savages' sometime as well

    Hi Jon,

    OK - here's my Version 1 of the tab. Actually, it's the first tab I've ever written from scratch. I don't think I have the "Ah-oh-e-ah" part written correctly (although I do think each is a one note slide), and I might have missed a note in some of the riffs, but I'd say it's 96% correct, at least. :)

    RSVP and let me know what you think.
