    Hi Folks!

    Searched TB a few different ways before posting my question to (hopefully) avoid answers that include "It's in like 37 different threads, here, Dude. Didn't you do a search?"

    I'm trying to learn the SRV song "You'll Be Mine" and I figure there are most likely some folks here familiar with it. Can someone point me in the direction of bass tab for the song? Also, is my ear (and attempts at playing it) correct in it's assessment that this is an easier exercise if I'm playing tuned down?

    Thanks for the help.
  2. Have you tried a search on the net? 911 tabs, or such?

    SRV stuff is typically tuned down to Eb.

    I did actually with no success finding bass tab. Lots of other SRV/Tommy Shannon stuff out there but not this one.

    Thanks for the tuning tip, though. As I was messing around with it I got the sense that it might be easier to play tuned down.

    Some days, I miss my drums :D

    I don't know about any tabs for this song, but the main line is a R-5-7b. Using chromatic runs to approach the next chord. A lot of Tommy's walking lines are generally major scale degrees. Look up youtube videos of live performances to get an idea of what he is doing.
    If you are new to blues bass, search for walking patterns to help you better understand what to do.

    Actually relatively new to bass, period. But both your suggestions have been helpful. I appreciate the help. Thanks!
