One Thing Leads to Another Request

Discussion in 'Tablature and Notation [BG]' started by agreatheight, Mar 14, 2009.

  1. This is a request for the tab for "One Thing Leads to Another" by the Fixx. I searched the net and found squat. I also searched this forum and found one that was wrong. I really only need the chorus. I am having trouble hearing the runs.

    Thanks much in advance!
  2. Bump - someone out there has to play this song!!

  3. Another bump!
  4. One more bump... I have worked out a line that sounds right to me, but would like some confirmation.

    Here's the chorus :D

    G||-----------------------6--|---------------------------|| 4 x's

    It sounds good either played fingerstyle at the bridge, or slap the notes on the E and A strings while popping the notes on the D and G strings.

    When I first posted, I was going from memory. Today I listened to the mp3 and remembered bar 1 has two variations he plays.
    For example, in the first and second chorus, var1 replaces bar 1 the first time and var2 replaces bar 1 the third time. In the third chorus, var2 replaces bar 1 the first and third times.

    Played BASE's chorus tab, sounds better then ours:)

    I know there are notes missing from our tab, but it sounds sorta close i guess. Our we just have bad hearing, but whatever.

    this is what me and my buddy figured out:

    I figured it out, we actually play this song out and I usually fumbled my way through it. I got looking for the tab online and couldn't find it anywhere. guess what!! its a bitch to play in normal tuning because its tuned a half step UP! Ive got my HD video cam set up and Im making a demonstration for you and will have it done by this evening at the latest. It'll be posted on my youtube site and I place the link here. Later.

    Does anyone have a current tab for this? I am needing to learn it for an upcoming gig.
