    hi i'm new and i'm glad i found a bass forum

    now i hope i can finally find someone who can direct me to tabs of explosions in the sky or godspeed you black emperror or something absolutely heavy and trippy just like those

    and maybe, just maybe, if they can't be found (i've been unsuccesfull for a while), someone could tab them for me?

    (maybe 'a song for our fathers?)

    cheers & thanks! :D

    From what I have heard (I own three GPY!BE cds) the bass work is fairly simple. I really think one bassist follows the cello/violin and the other just holds down the chords/arpeggios.

    Have you tried using your ears yet? You might surprise yourself if you have never tried. :D


    I will break out those discs and see if I can help you out with some of the tunes though.

    this is the basic thing, of course there's a lot of variation in it, but i'm sure you are all more proficient than i at applying the variation...

    cheers, hope it's right, hope you enjoy it

    if you don't know the song it's definetly worth searching..
    you can realy lose your head playing this...

    let me know how you liked it :D
