Says "video unavailable" on my screen. Is this a joke related to the fact that "When Doves Cry" has no bass line?
Check out this bass cover for In the Air Tonight
He cheated. He actually played a bass line
"Prince wrote and composed "When Doves Cry" after all the other tracks were complete on Purple Rain. In addition to vocals, he played all instruments on the track. The song's texture is remarkably stark. There is no bass line, which is very unusual for an '80s dance song; Prince said that there originally was a bass line but, after a conversation with singer Jill Jones, he decided that the song was too conventional with it intact. The song features an intro of a guitar solo and a Linn LM-1 drum machine, followed by a looped guttural vocal. After the lyrics, there is another, much longer guitar and a synthesizer solo. The song ends on a classical music-inspired keyboard piece backed by another synthesizer solo. Keyboardist Matt Fink revealed in 2014 that the baroque synthesizer solo was recorded by Prince at half speed and an octave lower against a half-speed backing track, then sped up to create the final version. Fink was then tasked to learn and perform the solo at the album's speed."
HOWEVER, if you listen to the song and the tuned percussion, there is a bass line waiting. I play A2 E C A1 G and it pretty much nails it.
I would love to play that!
So sad, that the video doesn 't come with the tabs!
Tabs are for bars, not bass players.
However, if the tab also has musical notation, you have my dispensation to use it
Not as cool as the bassline for "Kiss".
