    The tab for all frets part throws me but bass tab archive and ogla are the best I've found - punch into a search and you'll figure the link out. I really need to have a look at tabs on this site. I think smashing pumpkins has an extensive sit of their own. Hard to find one you're looking for sometimes so the more options, the better the chance.

    The tabs in this thread are in jest, as in chortle chortle, guffaw guffaw. Not exactly what the author had in mind. It happens sometimes.

    Yeah, I know... I contributed to the chortling... but what did he want? I mean... all the frets I mean, there are 24 typically on a bass right? Does he mean notes, all the notes on the bass? Because that wouldn't be a tab...

    In that case... all you need to know is your alphabet! There are only 12 notes: A A# B C C# D D# E F F# G G#

    The only notes that don't really have sharps are B and E. If someone said B sharp, it would be a C if someone said E sharp it would be an F. It sounds confusing but it's not. So, all you need to do to learn the notes on the neck is remeber this. So typically your bass is tuned EADG. So what comes after E? F. So the first fret is an F. Then F#, then G, then G# then A. This continues until the 12th fret which is where you will have completed an octave which means basically you'll be back at E, but it's a higher pitch. After an octave is completed the cycle of notes will continue.

    Then on the A string, same deal... first fret is A# second is B third is C... get it? No tabs required. Simple stuff, just requires time. I've heard of punk bassists writing the note names on the bass neck and the guitarist yells out what note to go to and they just look at the neck, and there it is in writing. :)

    Personally, I recommend practicing before gigging. :smug:

    Oh yeh, didn't look back to see who wrote what. Just figured it was somebody reading it for the first time or even the author maybe.

    I didn't have a clue from the gitgo. Maybe it was a joke to start with. Or maybe the author knew what he meant but just did'nt get it down so someone else would. But the response he got is the best I could make out of the request.
