My band (with a 3-piece, sometimes a 4-piece horn section) wants to do Tower of Power's "What Is Hip?" I love the tune but good lord, Rocco's bass line is a real push for me. Keep in mind that I'm only about 2 years into the bass guitar (after many years as a rhythm guitar player), and I've only been playing fingerstyle for about 8 months. Some of those 16th-note runs are just SO busy, and some of them require a fair amount of pinky-fretting. I'm finding that I can use my pinky, but it's not quite fast enough. Any suggestions for helping me get thru the learning curve on this song? Any ideas for simplifying the bass line that will still sound ok?
