    I'm interested to see what turns up here on this one. I've been playing that song for years, but do my own thing on it. Fun song to play.

    Yea I've got the chord sheet and can play along but I can't believe there's no tab or transcription anywhere!

    Yeah, I learned it by ear when we first started playing it. It has now morphed into our own thing.

    I love this song, but I've never played it, any time I suggested it nobody had heard of it!

  6. I’ll give it a shot this weekend unless a transcription shows up before then.

  7. I like the measures of 5/4 in the chorus. This bass line is all about the rhythm. Thanks for the suggestion.

    I was just listening to it on my phone so a bit hard to hear the bass but....

    The song is pretty simple with Bill Wyman on bass playing mostly roots. It’s in G major and is the form V IV I. I hear him embellish the I chord by throwing in B-C-D (the 3,4,5 of the G chord).

    Bridge goes VI-V-IV-I

    All chords so far diatonic to the key of G.

    Then goes to bIII (major).

    I hear a few octaves in there to dress things up, but otherwise it’s really simple and just holding down the groove. It fits the song so well. The tone sounds like a tuba. Sounds like a New Orleans street band kind of tuba bass. Just the simple groove on the root with that little 3-4-5 thrown in and lots of space.

    On exile I really love the songs with bill plumber on upright like rip this joint and the incredible turd on a run.

    And the most interesting bass is on casino boogie by.......keif!!

  10. I don't. If you don't mind converting to tab, that would be great. Let me know if I need to make corrections. Thanks.
