Does anyone have decentbtabs for breakfast at Tiffany's? It's a simple song but I can'tseem to pull the bass out of the song and the two sets of tabs I have found seem wrong when I play them. Any help gratefully received.

I know it's not a tab, but the singer was the bass player and featured quite heavily playing bass in the video (on the back of a truck iirc)

Thanks will take a look, being trying to get it off an old cd I have, looked on YouTube for bass covers as they can be helpful but only one on there and I am not convinced it's close.

That has helped a bit and with listening to it about thirty times one after another I think I have it. All the tabs have an octave of the first D (at G7) as the second note but I can't hear that. If I miss that out I can get a working bassline.

THIS might be worth a watch, it looks like a D on the G string to start.

I used to play this. I've just looked up my old notes and this is what I found. My bass playing has come along significantly since, so this tab may well be incomplete and/or wrong., but it might just help you.

Intro

Work out songs in sections, intro, verse, chorus, bridge etc.

Start with the chords, then add the details.

After fiddling about with a load and getting something I enjoyed playing that didn't bore me to tears, we dropped it........ Guitarists weren't happy with how it sounded and with a longer than usual gig coming up we had to focus on stuff we could stick together quickly. I was happy with anyway and couldn't see the issue but there you go.

To be fair it is a bit pop for our set but I thought we had punked it up enough to work.
