Subject: BTAB : Prince - New position

transcribed by Mark <>
*********************************New Position**********************************

by Prince & the Revolution from the album Parade

I.  PERFORMANCE NOTES
	
	"New Position," from Parade, features a excellent bass line full of 
motion.  The song begans with a segue from the end of the first track, 
Christopher Tracy's Parade.  The bass lays out during the Intro.  Rhythm Figure 1 begins at the first verse.  Essentially, the song is composed of Rhythm Figure 1
and Rhythm Figure 2.  Slight variations occur only at the end of the song.  
The "run" that ends the song is quite tricky and is played very fast.
