THE riff.


This is played again and again and again.
If you're going to perform this, i'd recommend having it sampled
and looped or something or you're bassist/keybordist will die
of bordom. (believe me, i've tried.)

comments, corrections (pfff, yeah right), etc...

Thank you man for this. The truth is that I am getting so much from this community that I should propably try to give smt back. For the time being, the only way I can give something back is by providing feedback through my comments.
So, the tab is perfect! Thank you.

The only thing I would like to comment is that thing you said about looping the bass. Well, although we are talking about a song coming from a genre with electronic influences (and sound of course) which in that case looping would be appropriate (even then I have my objections but this is another issue itself...), when it comes to performing live, if the song requests it, then you play it the way it is, no matter how boring it is. If you are a professional of course and your point is to play the song and not jam over it or cover it. Otherwise, it is clear..
This comes not from a bass player but from a brummer. I kind of playing the guitar and the bass just because I like music and I cannot play the drums at anytime. I'm saying this, because just like the bass, the drums too, have a tendency to be more "fixed". I'm sorry I don't know how to describe it. But that's why these 2 instruments compose the "base of the song". If you notice, the drums as well are kind of same the whole time in this song. But they are awesome. (By the way, listen to the On her majesty's secret service, if you haven't already..Well the whole album is great). Again, to avoid generalizations and misunderstandings, we are talking about a specific genre here. Which requires discipline (like pop too for example). If you loop the bass, then loop the drums and bring a dj to put the cd and put other loops... I don't want to sound ironic or depreciate the musicality of a dj, but you get my point? no? The hard thing in these genres of music is that you need to stay disciplined. Kind of focused. This is the impressive thing and this is what makes it hard.

Anyway, I don't want to attack you or smt like this. After all, I don't even know you or the way you meant to write these words. I could send you my response in the mail attached, so we could keep this communication private. But as I told you, this is my way to give back smth to this community (at least for now). And even if my words do not contain the total truth, at least they have some, which means that someone else who might read these lines (which I doubt he will reach so far) might also come up with something else, and goes on. You know...

Anyway, thanks again.
