Bass line to Girls & Boys, from the album Parklife by Blur.

This is a way cool song - brings back the 80's slap bang in my face, &
it's simply a fine bass line as well. Mmmmmmm.

The /---\ symbols indicate a triplet. The chords are shown above as well.
It's a bit hard on the fingers this, but is a really triff tune. It's
repeated throughout the whole song; dead easy. Every now & then he chucks
in a few twiddles in the Eb bit; I haven't bothered writing these down.

Some fun:

Are you a Blur fan? Do you like the Smiths as well? Try playing 'Clover
Over Dover' from Parklife on your stereo and playing the main riff to
'Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others' from The Queen Is Dead over the top
on your guitar. Slow it down a little, and they fit together perfectly.

Coincidence? ...or what?
