    I can't figure out what the bass is doing in Paint It Black. The chorus part is fine, but during the verse, I just can't hear it. I've been playing really fast Es and Bs, which sounds ok, but I'd like to get a better grasp on what's actually going on.
     
  2. Too me it sounds like he's going
    (E) e-e-b-e--e-b-e-e-e-b-e--e-b-e
    and then (B) b-f#-b-f#-b-g-b-#f-b-f#-b-f#-b-g-b-#f

    Then towards the end with the slidey part...which i don't play :oops:

    (E) e-e-b-e--e-b-e-e-e-b-e--e-b-e
    (B) b-f#/ f#\ b-f#/ f#\ b-f#/ f#\ b-f#/ f#\ (i think)

    We've been playing this recently.

    I've been playing it like this:

    VERSE:
    +--------------------------+ +--------------------------+
    +-----2----2----2----2--+ +-----4----4----4----4--+
    +--2----2----2----2-----+ +--2----2----2----2-----+
    +--------------------------+ +--------------------------+



    CHORUS:

    +-----------+---------+---------+---------+-----------+---------+---------+
    |-2-2-2-0-0-|---------|-2-2-2-2-|-2-2-2-2-|-2-2-2-0-0-|---------|---------|
    |-----------|-----5-5-|---------|---------|-----------|-----5-5-|-0-0-0-0-|
    +-----------+-3-3-----+---------+---------+-----------+-3-3-----+---------+

    +---------+
    |---------|
    |-2-2-2-2-|
    +---------+


    SLIDE PART NEAR THE END:
    +--------------------------++-------------------------------------------+
    +-----2----2----2----2--++-------------------------------------------+
    +--2----2----2----2-----++--2/14---2/14----2/14----2/14-----+
    +--------------------------++-------------------------------------------+


    It sounds right to me...
