About this tab version
Tab of the fantastic bassline for the last Far Field track, including measures and strumming tips. Best played picked. Was this info helpful? Yes No
This song is pretty simple and, in my opinion, the best on Future Islands' new record by a long shot.  Felt or
rubber pick with an up-down-up-down strum pattern, the song is all quarter notes but they switch between on- 
and off-beat like constantly.  Listen really closely for the pattern on the chorus, its sort of buried in the 
mix.

Bass enters at 0:14

That's all she wrote.  This song's got a pretty good strutting sound to it, I love this bassline and it plays
against the drums and tambourine really well.  Happy playing!
