Artists: Jamiroquai
Title: Alright
Album: Travelling Without Moving

Bass Player: Stuart Zender
This Transcription: Lawrence Docherty

Dedications: This ones for Tomsk, and for everyone else from around the
world who mailed me to ask (you know who you are) :o)

This is a deceptively easy number. Keep those disco octaves rock-steady, and
in the sliding section try and add a bit of swing
into the bassline, get yourself grooving ;o) Any comments as usual to my new
address: loafer@larry.prestel.co.uk

Brief key:   3/5 means slide from fret 3 to 5, X means muted note on
corresponding string,
             3h5 means hammer-on from fret 3 to fret 5


Intro. (Note - all notes softly plucked (I use my thumb for this section)
and each note not marked X must last!!!)
       (There are some stray muted notes in here as well, listen to the
record for timing!)

        X                 X                  X                 X

then into...

Main Riff. (Note - the octaves are all played Stacatto, ie abruptly or
sharply. Use thumb and middle fingers, its the easiest)
           (way to play these disco-type things. Some of the notes are slid
onto: I'll mark those with a *. Listen to the)
           (record, you'll know what I mean. This riff crops up a lot
throughout the song. I'll only write it down once though.)

Variations on main riff. (Note - played later on in the song. Various ones,
the three main ones are here. Fiddle with these)
         (to get the rest!)

The End. Same as the start but play the notes Stacatto a couple of times
instead of once softly. No tab required ;)
