BASS TAB: Feelin' - Local radio version

Postby Silva » Tue Jan 26, 2021 4:13 am

Hello, lads. I've tabbed the holy grail of John Power bass work (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1EasgU8xMg)

The tab: https://www.acousterr.com/tab/feelin

I found out how to play it by playing the guitar, but i've transposed it to bass. And by playing the video and the tab website at the same time you'll notice that it is exactly correct.The outro has a special rythm that i was unable to tab correctly, but it's very easy to pick it right by listening to the song.

Very nice, an underrated bassline - aren't all the La's' basslines underrated? - and yep, the BEST version

You got a real ear for this stuff man

Thank you

Yeah, i love the la's basslines. John usually plays high notes on the bass, which gives it more twang and melody. Shame that the bass on the album is so low and dead. There's a low quality video performance where they play feelin' and timeless melody and the bass sounds so good.

The La's are a bit tricky to play along to cause you work out a tab and realise it's not in standard

But yeah. Good work, played this myself with my sloppy but forceful bass skills.

Keep going! It's very rewarding music to play

Updated!

Ive tabbed it with the normal bassline, the little variations on the local radio version can be inprovised easily.

This tab is in standard tuning, you might need to tune down your bass for other versions.
I had to change the outro because ive noticed it starts on an A and not an E

Improvising may look easy but you may do it wrong.

I can't decide if these posts are bots or not

Probably.
