tabbed by : El Kasri Dris ,  elkasri_dris@yahoo.com

 A few weeks ago ,a friend of mine gave me a Jethro Tull album recorded on a
tape .I discovered a great band whose bassist (I don t khnow his name) amazed
me  and now I think that he is one of the greatest bassists in the world (with
Tony Levin,Billy Sheehan,Stu Hamm,the great John Myung of course,...and lets
say ...Flea...why not?)
 I didn t put the rests because there are too much,just listen to the song to 
khow when to play them.
 One last thing ,I didn t manage to find the bass solo.I you find it send it 
to me: the one who manages to find it is really the king of the bass!!!!!!!!
 Enjoy!

************************************************************************************

 Then comes the bass solo.It is played with chords and it s really very difficult
to play.I only have a walkman tape player  and my bass is an awefull Fender 
Precision's imitation from Taiwan or something like that.and I forgot to say you
that I play the bass for only 5 or 6 months...So you ll understand that I didnt
manage to find this solo...  :(

************************************************************************************


 play a bass line quite similar to the first one:

For all I know, Jathro Tull only covered a song (symphony or whatever) by Johann Sebastian Bach, and even the bassline was made by J.S. Bach, so the bassist isn't all that great. :P But I agree, it's a trully amazing bassline.

to Alien_from_a_cd: the first part of Bouree by Jethro Tull is a jazzy performance to the original first part by Bach. after it, it's very diffrent from one another.
so, actualy, most of Bouree, by Jethro, is original
