Ya I know.. just what the Mudcat needed eh, yet another music thread, and yet another MEC music thread to boot!

Well, tough...

For some reason, my bass player is having a bit of a chore wrapping his head around this one... He asked me last night over cups, if I'd look around on the net, so as part of my rounds I thought I'd ask here... I mean, you people are so friendly and helpfull eh...

Any help? Even just suggestions, if not full blown tab?

Ta eh!

I've used tab in guitar-ing, but not for bass. I find that root-fifth of the chord is a good starting pattern for the bassist, in a lot of songs in 4/4..then when he's comfortable with that, start adding bass runs(just like on guitar) between chords.

example: bass tuning is E-A-D-G, low to high:

a G accompaniment in 4/4 time would be, for instance, open G (high string),open D (next string lower), and repeat...till chord changes...

Man, if he can't figure out a bass pattern on a fairly simple tune like MEC, you should fire him. What key are you playing in, and what is your guitar tuning? Stan did it in DADGAD.

Well, that's supportive Bassman...

He's a good bass player, or was a few years ago, and he's totally NEW to folk music... When was the last time you picked up an instrument that you haven't played for 8 years and learned a new genre of music eh? He's doing quite well I think... He's shown all kinds of improvement over even say just the last 4 months... Besides if everyone who had trouble with one song every now and again got fired, there'd be no one left to play gigs...

I play MEC DADGAD capoed 5th...
