    So I'm wondering where the Dropped D notes from the Kubicki are in the song?

    This is the tab I used to learn it http://www.songsterr.com/a/wsa/duran-duran-notorious-bass-tab-s33530t4 and it sounds right when I play it, but I was certain JT used the Drop D latch on his Kubicki... so is it just in E or is the tab terribly incorrect? Does anybody else here play Notorious in E or Drop D? this really has me scratching my head... thanks.

    Either way, JT's Kubicki tone was the best he's ever had, IMO. Can't stop listening to the Live at the Beacon Theatre album.

    I always played it with regular tuning.

    Hmmm. I was hoping for a few more respones. Thanks though, I also play it in standard.

    I play it drop D. I match the lower keyboard notes at the end of the song.

    Which lower keyboard notes? Is it just a D? I'm not quite sure what you're referring to.
