    Well, perhaps I should re-post, seeing as I got sooooooo much help last time:

    I've tabbed all of the song "Panama" by Van Halen, but I can't seem to learn the bit during the solo. A lil help please?

    Funny how this hasn't gotten any replies...I guess Van Halen basslines must just rock too hard for most of the folks around here to transcribe.

    Who knew?

    Actually, I can't even think of how the bassline goes in that song -- chorus, solo, verse, or otherwise. I can think of the words though...

    "Panama! Panama-ha! Panama! Panama-ha-ha-ha-ha!"

    And don't forget the famous Diamond Dave voice over: "Reach down........between my legs......ease the seat back........."

    Maybe if Dave would just shut up, we could figure out the damn bassline. As it is, it's like brain surgery. BRAIN SURGERY, I tell you!

    Oh wait, that's something else.

    I'll post where I like - it's a free country aint it?

    You tellin' me what I can and can't do? ;)

    Seriously - there is so much incentive to help, when we get talked to so nicely and all! :rolleyes:

    Don't worry dude I once asked for a tab on this site, and lets just say I learnt that lesson fairly quick

    It's like someone said once "..get on down to Tabcrawler.com and flex your muscles"

    You won't find that sorta help here, apparently most of these experienced bassist are beyond tablature

    Presonally I find it a bit:oops:

    (that's a yawn, not an orgasm, once again I'd like to stress that we need new smilies)
