    hehe Bernard Edwards from Chic was the man, ya dig? This bassline was written for Chic's song "Good Times."

    Here is a quick reference of how I play it... the notes are correct as far as I can tell, though I figured it out by listening, so I could be wrong...

    G---------------------------------------------------------------|
    D---------------------------------------------4p0h5-4----------|
    A----------------------0-2-4-5-7----------00----------0--000--|
    E-0--0--0------00-2-3-----------5--5--5---------------------3-|

    Just listen for the rhythm...

    This way it formats correctly in case it didn't show up right for you before...

    I also changed those 0s to Xs right at the end because I just play it muted.
