  3. It kind of does, but I do not know the exact fingers to use, and I'm a profectionist when it comes to everything I do.

    I think it's straight eight notes.
    1&2&3&4&. I've never think too much about which fingers I'm using it just happens.

    I played this song with my school jazz band and I have the sheet music for it. in the key I have it in its all eights and the notes are F F G FAb F Bb A the lower case b's represent flats so its Aflat and B flat so with a tab it would be

    A-------------1-0-----------
    E-1-1-3-1-4-1--------------------
     
  8. btw bass_extremes I do know what flats are :) but thank you for the reminder dude, and thank you guys for the help.

    It's such a great groove! I love to play it, but I've been amazed for years at how many people F up the melody! What is so hard about it? I cringe now when someone wants to jump into it. I feel like asking "are you SURE you know the melody, dude?"
     
  12. it's

    E: e e f# e "f# to slide g" then repeat and rinse :)
     
  13. when I get good enough to record a little demo of this song, what is the suggested speed? like 175 ish?

    Spelling and grammar excluded, presumably...?


    :D
     
  17. Sorry my bad, I was very tired when I typed that out, Oh well lol.


    :hyper: :ninja: :bassist:
     
  18. Also how long will it take me to get up to speed?, right now I can play it fine, but when I try to play it fast my fingers seem to pile up on each other, Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr its mading.

  19. No worries, just start slow and gradually increase the speed, it'll come.

    Try playing it at almost twice the original speed and transposed up a half-step, like my son has to do for pep band at basketball games (damned horn players anyhow). That'll give ya a cramp.

    Makes you a better player, though.
