    Anyone into Drum and bass???

    I got into playing an EUB after seeing Roni size live in Brighton UK last year. Truly Awesome..

    Does anyone know where i can get tab or music of Roni Size's stuff, in particular - Brown paper bag?

    cheers

    Code:
    G-|----0---------14--14-15-14---
    D-|-12---12-12------------------
    A-|------------------------------
    E-|------------------------------
    
    Thats the first section to Brown Paper bag (working this out as I go along, lol).

    Then the insainley low bit is something like (highs and mids totally cut)

    Code:
    G-|------------------------------
    D-|------------------------------
    A-|------------------------------
    E-|--3-----3--------3-6-6-6-----
    

    Then over the final section theres something in octaves, like

    Code:
    G-|------------------------------
    D-|---------5--------------------
    A-|------------------------------
    E-|--3--3-------3--3------3-----
    



    I've just realised this may well not be Brown Paper Bag but its so long since I've heard that song I can't remember if this is it or not (damn dodgy ID3 tags, lol).

    I never endorse tabs, but I'm a big enough roni size to make an exception.

    Here's how I play brown paper bag.

    intro(repeats a bunch):
    G------9-10-9-------
    D-----------------7-8-7
    A-----------------------
    E-----------------------

    break:
    G----------------------6-0-9-10-9
    D----------4------------------------
    A-------------------------------------
    E---2----2----------6----------------

    Main riff:
    G---------9-10-9---6----------
    D------------------------8--------
    A--------------------------7-------
    E----2--2-------------------3--6-6


    There is some slight variation with specific notes and rhythms and muting and ghost notes and junk, but if you're familiar with the song, you should be able to make some sense of this.

    Yeesh, it took me forever to tab that out, going mostly from memory since I haven't really played the song in a while, and I haven't written tab in forever. But, roni size is one of my favorites and brown paper bag is a killer track, so I hope that helps.

    cheers, Si John inspired me to go buy a double bass 6 months back - i spoke to him after the gig and he said he was self taught... totally inspiring...

    cheers for the tabs. please accept a virtual case of beers as thanks...

    Oh, and what was the other tune you tabbed?

    I used to be a drum and bass DJ, toured all over south africa going clubs, and festies and stuff, was a brilliant time in my life. Roni size always seemed to me to me the pinnacle of drum and bass, mixing the hard stuff up with funk, jazz,whatever. he always had an edge. So when i moved to the UK and got an opportunity to see reprazent (or whatever the name of his current posse is)... it was magic... all the old anthems i used to play in durban were played live... so now cuz of that, here i am learning jazz double bass. Its great.

    Roni is brilliant, check out track 2 of his album, in the mode. for a more club feel of his DnB stuff, check anything on full cycle records or V recordings...

    sorry, im gushing...
