Denzel Curry-If Tomorrow's Not Here


Pretty cool but simple bassline at the end of Denzel Curry's Imperial. The track features Twelve'len.


This is the main structure for the bassline. 
G|----9-11-12-9-----------6-7---------------------------------------|
D|---9-------------------9----9-------------------------------------|
A|-7-------------------9--------------------------------------------|
E|--------------8-----7--------7------------------------------------|


The bassline seems to be looped, but there is variations at the end of the phrases every now and then.
These are the different variations I was able to pick out:


G|----9-11-12-9-------------6-7-----------------9-11-12-9------------|
D|---9---------------------9----9-------------9----------------------|
A|-7---------------------9------------7/9-8-7------------------------|
E|--------------8---10--7--------7------------------------8----------|
                ^   ^                 ^^^^^^^ 
                ^   ^          (Chromatic walk down to the root again)
   (these notes lead it into the next chord)


G|----9-11-12-9-----------6-7---------------9-11-12-9----------------|
D|---9-------------------9----9------------9-------------------------|
A|-7-------------------9-----------------7---------------------------|
E|--------------8-----7--------7---10-11---------------8-------------|
                                   ^^^^^
                      (Chromatic walk up to the root)
                                  (D-D#-E)


During the hook (when Twelve'len sings "If tomorrow's not here")the bassline changes to what is written below.
The same variations and chromatic walks down/up to the root note are still present.

G|----9-11-12-9------------6-7----------9-11-12-9--------------6-7------------------------------------------|
D|---9-------------------9-----9------9-----------------------9----9----------------------------------------|
A|-7--------------------9-----------7-----------------------9-----------------------------------------------|
E|--------------8-----7----------7----------------8--------7---------5----10--------------------------------|
It follows this pattern throughout the duration of the hook.



Please note: This position on the fretboard is the way I found it easiest to play while getting the right
tone for the song; try hitting the strings over the end of the neck where the highest frets on your bass are
so you can get a similar sound to what is on the song. All of this was done by ear and it seems to be correct 
from what I hear.
Hopefully it'll be useful for someone.
