Subject: BASS TAB: POLICE COLLECTION

Police Bass TAB version 1.0
===========================

The following represents my personal collection of 
stringsÕs bass lines from his police years.
For the most part sting used a pick on a fender
jazz bass, occasionally there was a slight slap-back
echo delay applied to his lines.  The lines a simple
however they are not nessaraly easy maske sure to
listen to the recod carefullly to obtain stingÕs 
reggae and jazz syncopation was the bass drum.
I have been playing bass for about three weeks,
so any contructive critisizm or insight in to singÕs
style would be greatlly apreaciated.

Hal-Lenard publishing does have a police bass-tab book out
however I have yet to see it.  I also donÕt have the money
to spend on a potentianlly incorrect tab book.


Eventually I hope to transcribe the compleate Police for
bass.  Each time I transcribe more songs I will post them
in this newsgroup and in nevada.
