This bassline is classic and great!  It's just a jam song basically...only two parts.
 It has a huge instrument section and a bunch of solos.  Feel the groove.  This isn't
exact bassline all the way through because the original has a bunch of improvisations
to it.  These are the lines you can improvise with when you are comfortable.  F# Blues 
(F#-A-B-C-C#-E- (F#)) He also throws in a G3 every now and then...the 9th.

part a
D|-----4---------2-|----------------|  (repeat until next part- not sure the exact of bars)

   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +  1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +

part b

   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +  1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +  1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +

Just follow the rhythm, and make sure to count the breaks.

Thanks man. On the recording the key is F#, not F...but you could modulate this line to any key and it will sound fine.

This is in the wrong key, it's a half step down from what's written and the B section is close but not correct.

I want to post or [tab]
