    Any help is appreciated.

    The bass on the album version is more interesting. Theyve got Ronnie tracked twice with 2 bass lines, so it depends on which one you want....;)

  3. *Double Bump*

    Anybody? It's a brilliant piece of bass work and deserves to be played more often.

    FWIW the two bass lines are panned separately left and right. Cunning stuff, sounds like its going to be a fairly standard pedal initially, but just when you think its safe he starts throwing in some very groovy fills and runs.

    I Wanna Play Like Ronnie Lane!!!!!!:crying:

    The BBC version that I love is pretty much mainly a blues progression in E. Then just ass your own fills and flair to make it groove.

    This was one of the Faces' patented "Some Kind Of Wonderful" shuffles. The intro riff starts on the low F# and makes a tidy triangle shape that would not interfere with onstage brandy consumption. I would say that a lot of it happens on the first 4 to 6 frets (judging tonally) rather than at the 7th (the studio version). There are some crucial fills that land on the b7 (D). I love Ronnie Lane, such a fun player.
