                      BIDING MY TIME - Pink Floyd

Basstab by Gustavo02

The timing is not 100% precisily like the original because this is a jazzy
song. But you can figure the timing out just by hearing it I belive.

And now the blues part, the base will be always this:

E A E E A A E E B A E E    (all blues scales)

so you can do any blues thing following these scales.
There is a lot of variations until the end of the song, i won't write all,
just some of the main thing. But there are all on the "blues scale", it is
easy, just check the youtube to know about this scale.

I only gave it a 3/5 Cause it's a half step low. I.E. D--9- should be D--10- Etc. so the patterns are all right, but not the notes.

Re:31b,

Omg, I listed to the song now and you are right. I have no idea why i did this one step low hahahha. Probably my bass was tunned one step high when I wrote it and I didn't notice, sorry about that.
