    There was only one set of tabs for this Robert Palmer classic on the net, and they are incomplete on the bridge.

    Having a devil of a time trying to replicate the two little runs he does on the bridge (the bass and guitar together): "I know you like it" (bass/guitar run)..."you like it on top" (second run, but different).

    I have no idea why I can't seem to nail this one. Can anyone help?

  4. Resurrecting a Zombie Thread with a particular question.

    Doing this song and have it almost perfect with one exception....

    There is a little bass fill (from what I hearing in the song) that shows up a couple times, it's very obvious in the song and to me is a signature part, in live performances R.P. will sometimes turn and shake his hand, it's what I would call a short, descending run which shows up after (I think) he says "Shake my fist", or maybe "You think I'm cute".

    Racking my brain trying to get it, I can't find it on any of the online tabs.

    Can anyone help me out here?

    You are talking about the famous tritone. Palmer's
    version has this tasty bass bit. (Another version on youtube doesn't have this. )

    It has two notes: a "D" on the 19th fret of the g string and an "Ab" on the 18th fret on the d string. Start on the D alternate with the Ab, four times through.
  6. Thanks!!!

    It has been a sticking point and a detail I want to keep in there.

    I owe you!!!

    It's on songsterr as well. I recommend trying a lot of the song with alternating between the root and octave as well.
  8. Thanks.....yeah, it can be a pretty boring song for the most part.

    Gotta play it for the first time with the band tonight, I imagine it'll go just fine. I just needed that one little part to put on the finishing touches.

    Thanks everyone!
