I just need some help with a small section of the bassline of Can you dig it - it's the guitar solo just after the middle 8.

Look up "Guitar tab" on the net, and you get this:

" Solo, plenty of reverb and work that wah baby!


Played twice over B, twice over A, then twice over D"

Look up the bass tab on the net for the guitar solo and you get:

"...the bass hits either D or E on the A string and slides to 12th
fret and back repeatedly. Best to experiment with what sounds best for you."

Jamming along to YouTube, sliding between E and A (frets 7 and 12) on the A string sounds just fine to me, but my band's guitarist insists that's wrong and that I should play B A D roots under the rhthym guitarist's B A D chords, and I'm not convinced this works well for the bass.

Any advice, please?

Just seen this! I transcribed it for a pupil a few weeks back.
