    Bad Ass Bass,

    Welcome to TalkBass.

    I'm going to move this topic to Miscellaneous where you will have a better chance of receiving responses to your post.

    Music for a solo.....that's kinda an oxymoron, don't ya think?

    However, the best direction I can steer you without knowing your muscial taste is going with the "Lemon Song" by Lynard Skynard. Just kidding (inside joke), Led Zepplin. I would venture to guess that it's in the "Tabs" section.

    I swear Flea got his style from John Paul! Yes, I am serious about that....try listening to the Lemon Song a few times and then listen to BSSM.

    I hear ya; John Paul Jones & Flea both have a foundation in R&B...what you said makes sense(IMO).

    Solos written out?
    Makes for good study/analysis...solos are "usually" improvised.
    ...is that what you're inferring?

    Aha - the mention of bass solos - you knew I'd turn up didn't you?

    For me the "fun" of solos, is improvising - the point in the music where you can stamp your own personality on the proceedings; so I can see why this request can be seen as a bit strange. Most Jazz players will transcribe solos, however; but I think it is the process itself that is important, not actually playing that solo note for note in a performance. So actually giving out tab, is diminishing the "learning experience".

    Taking a solo you like from a record and trying to work out how to play this and more importantly why the musician played what they did, is one of the most useful learning exercises you can undertake, so I think we should all refuse to give any out as this would be "missing the point".

    The way to improve and learn is to do this for yourself and incorporate the ideas behind the solo into your own playing without slavishly copying one particular solo or "lick".

    Bad Ass:

    I join Dave in welcoming you to TalkBass. I will add. however, that I have noticed that you have posted the same topic twice. This one and one in Off-Topic. Therefore, I am closing this one. I will delete it in a day or two.

    Please take a moment to read the thread entitled "Getting the most out of TalkBass" in this forum or "Bass Forum Housecleaning" in the "Basses" forum.

    Will C. cool.

    I'm not a genius. I'm just a hard working guy.
