    I'm not going to offer any advice, but playing the A on the e string is harder than playing it open A.... even easier.

    I try to avoid open strings if I can since it tends to bring a more even sound (atleast on my bass).
     
  4. Gee thanks..I didn't know that :rolleyes:

    :D

    I know but you get a darker tone with the E string..and the Star Wars theme isn't exactly light...

    I dig it Polly, but there's already a tab floating around out there for the Star Wars theme, and it's a tad more complex (the dude has the chords and stuff). You gonna let him get away with that? :mad: :D

    Uh,,, I didn't do that, if thats what your saying.

    Bah, open string sounds, what do you guys have? the worst bass in the world? Open strings on my bass don't sound horrible.
     
  8. Yeah I posted it here in school, so I did it from memory, it's been corrected thanks for reminding me.
     
  9. Try to do it with the open string and make it sound even.
     

  10. sorry to dig up such an old thread but does anyone know where to find this alleged chordal version of the star wars theme? I wannnnit....

    Link?

    There's a guitarist at my work who does a ripping version of 'The Phantom Menace' main theme. Man, I gotta get me some of that action. :ninja:
