    Wwhhhaaaat are you up to??? :ninja:

    I'm not a dance pop fan but I'm liking Chase the Thrill. I'll do the tab but standard notation is out. Tab should suffice as it's pretty straight forward...

    Never Wanna C U again reminds me of Amy Winehouse during the verse and the whole thing reeks of Brittany Spears' Toxic. It would be so much better with real drums...

    Nylons in a Rip - Meh. Filler. Just my opinion.

    OK, I'll tab it but it's going to cost my standard rate - one joke that makes me laugh out loud per song.

    Never Wanna CU Again. I hate when people use stuff like, "CU" instead of, "See You"... Anywho, there's some pretty nifty bass playing in here. Follow the tab along with the song first - there's a lot going on.



    You'll need a bass synth and / or an octave pedal to make these songs sound right.

    nikka-costa-never-wanna-cu-.

    \ = play the same note
    / = slide
    |: :| = repeat

    Looking back, I think where it says, "Repeat same as 0:41" it should say, "0:48". My bad... Waddya want for free...

    The note at 0:15 says, "Fminor" - the one at 1:29 says, "fill".

    Good luck!

    Now THERE's some tasty as$ pop bass for ya! See if you can learn some Duran Duran by ear. Anything off of their 1st album through Notorious you can't go wrong. Just save Rio for last...

    Good luck. Feel free... Where's my jokes?

    Here's another tip for learning stuff off the YouTube - plug your bass directly into your computer so that all the sound is coming from the same source. Go to Radio Shack and get a 1/4" male to 1/8" female adapter and a cable. Make sure it's all mono. Get a long cable.... trust me....

    Thank you so much for both of those tabs. Yes I am the same one talking about ear training in the other forum. I took a stab at these 2 songs and wanted to see how close I came. So far... I was close-ish :)

    Joke: What do you throw to a drowning bass player?...
