    No luck in the "do search first" department, so here goes:

    Does anyone have the tab, sheet music or suggestions for the bass part for "the Game of Love"?

    I know it's based around Em7 to DM7. But my ear is playing tricks on me, and the theory dropout in me is making matters worse. I suspect the bass part (mainly in the chorus) has some extensions or pedal point?

    There are lots of tabs and chord charts out there, but for guitar only. Any help would be wonderful.

    Thanks,

    Bob

    Well, according to the tab in Acoustic Guitar (I think) mag, the bass does play the root on all of the Em7 chords. But there are are about 3 guitars and a piano in there. Lots of overtones.

    Not a hard bass part, but ....
