Folks,

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!


e--15---------------------------------------------
B----------12----10----12----14--10------------------
G------------------------------------9----7----------
D-------------------------------------------9-7-9----




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?

Steve

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