    Prince did a song called "Lets Work" way back in the day, my mom's a big Prince fan and I heard this song on a tape she has from who knows when. When I heard this song I was amazed by the bassplaying, which I believe was Prince on bass. Anybody have tab for it?

    Thanks,
    Oog :)

    It's from Prince's classic 1981 album Controversy. I think it's one of his fattest bass lines ever. I don't have any tab programs apart from powertabs however. So if I'm gonna make you a tab of it( I might as well, it's only two bars long) you've gotta download powertab software to be able to view it.

    Or you could have Powertab save it as an ACSII notebook file
    and post it here in New Courier font.

    I'm kind of busy so this is a bit incomplete. The main groove's all here though. So, here you go, maybe I'll finish it later. I'll post it in bass tabs now.

    since both btab and ptb are invalid extensions i'll pm you the file in stead.

    Crap. I can't seem to get that to work, either. Tell you what. Pm me you e-mail adress and I'll send to you personally.

    just rename the file with the extension .txt
    instead of .btab

    Cool thanks pauljacksonfan! How does that tabbing software work? Is it free or do I have to pay for it?

    Thanks again,

    Oog :D
