TOP - Diggin' on James Brown

Discussion in 'Tablature and Notation [BG]' started by Alex, Dec 13, 2005.


  1. I need someone to transcribe/tab Rocco's bass part for Diggin' on James Brown by Tower of Power. Thanks guyz :bassist:
     
  2. Cmon! I need this for an audition and I can't figure it out. I think that I know the recurring simultaneous part, but not the verses or solo sections. Help out a deaf man :(
     
  3. shameless bump
     
  4. Alright guys. Here's what I figured out for the main riff. It's eighth notes:

    ------?---?---5?---3?-------3---5---
    ------?---?-------------5-----------
    --3---?---?-------------------------
    ------?---?-------------------------

    then it permutates to D and back and then F and G at the key change.

    I JUST NEED 4 NOTES!!!! AHHHH. :bawl: so frustrating. the Bari part makes these notes impossible hard to hear. :rollno: Does anyone have a fake book or just figured it out or something?

    Anyone?







    Anyone?

    :help: :help: :help: :help: :help:

    well........... I don't do tab.


    But I'll give you some hints


    It's very similar to Cold Sweat. With little 16th note Rocco isms that are ussually assend cromadic to the next cord.


    Its basically a blues the cords are C,F,G

    the Bridge goes to F then to G the Solo is the Bridge repeated


    Good Luck!
