    never thought much of the basslines in their songs 'til I started to try learning this one. There's actually more going on with the bass than it seemed at first.

    BUMP


    Made a little progress on my own by listening and watching the late Ben Orr on video, but still having problems.

    Yeah, that's one of the ones I've used. It's the best one, in fact.

    Well, from looking at the video and at one site I got this for the beginning:


    intro
    palm mute this part 2x
    |---------------------|---------7--7-6---------------------------|
    |--0-00-0-00-00-00---|---7--9---------9--7-----5-4----5-4-------|
    |---------------------|-----------------------------5------5-----|
    |---------------------|--------------------------------------5---|


    After that, welll....


    |-------------------------------------------
    |-------------------------------------------
    |------555555555555----5-4---------------- x2, then
    |--5-7-----------------------5555555555555


    |-----------------------
    |-----------------------
    |-----------------------
    |55--320*-5------------


    *pull-off 3-2-open



    I could be totally wrong about this, but it seems to work when I play it along with the song. I wish I could isolate the bass better.

    :help:

    Just thought I'd BUMP this one more time to see if anyone else here might have any ideas.

    I've only made a tiny bit of progress, myself. The instrumental part between the chorus and verse still has me kinda stumped.
