                             Hotline Bling - Drake
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Martijnfru
Key: F
Tuning: Standard
Info: 
This is the melody of the song. You may notice sometimes the notes don't exactly match with Drake's voice.
This is because the tones are sometimes a bit off with what the guitar can reach. Anyway, playing it with 
the guitar gives it a bluesy feel, wich is nice.
With this melody in mind, the song is kinda cool to improvise to.
The scale of the tab written here is mostly the first form to make it easier to understand the notes. 
      
Have fun!

So these patterns keep repeating themselves throughout the song. There is a little bridge 
thing going on at the end. I say a perfect part to improvise! ;)

What's here is okay but not perfect, but leaving out the bridge and some of the other little flourishes seems odd.

I understand. It's partly because I look at this song as a nice track to improvise to, and partly because I need some more time for perfecting the tab. Maybe you have some complementations for those flourishes and the bridge?
Thanks for your feedback!

Tabbing out melodies doesn't really interest me that much. This song definitely lends itself to being altered and improvised over--just see some of the YouTube covers where really great singers have added tons of depth to a fairly repetitive track--but if you're going to upload a tab of the melody that's on the track, it should be complete is all.
