    My band members want to do this song and i just listened to it and there is no bass line. I guess i have to write my own bass line for this song but i cant come up with anything that sounds good unless i play in unison with the guitars... anything else sounds out of place... hmm anybody have any good ideas? haha thanks

    Yeah, it's a riff song, you should just riff.

    nope. Its a two piece band-Jack White on Guitars (he sometimes overdubs with multiple guitar lines, piano as you said, bass etc) and meg white on very simple drums (there should be a bass in my opinion cause it would be damn easy to lock up :D )
  6. With her shaky playing, i'd say it would be HARD to lock up.
