Flight Of The Bumblebee
If any of you have heard this its an amazing classic song written on Piano, Rumski Korsakof or sumthing, and it just rules its very fast, i found a 6 string tab for it, but most of us here play 4 strings. And i was wondering if anyone would know a tab for the 4 string bass version that would be really cool, Thanks

Or try and tab it out yourselves good luck, Joe satriani also played it as a cover live, infront of a huge dream theatre audience, its a very impressive piece, and im thinking of performing it in front of my music class soon, once i get a tab or sheet music for it.....argh!!

Cheers! :beer:

It comes to my mind, that i know this song.
Please post the tab.

And for the six-string tab: Isn't it possible, that you can transpose it some notes up, so that you can play it on a four string? OK, it's much work. But i think it's worth it.

yeah, post the 6 string version.

I'm still working on mark king's dune tune, meh, taking too long but its an impressive song too :D

I don't know this song but it must be a bitch to play on a 4 string, maybe even impossible, depends on how much he uses the high string. on a 5 string you can get a long way but uhm, the higher notes will probably be a bitch. post the tab so we can see.

yeah well its possible to play it on a four string but the notes would be much lower, but still quite impressive, Im working it out for a four string, ive got the main riff

Heres the six string version for it, its a dream theater website though

Somebody work out a 4 string version i only have 3 weeks till my coursework performance thingy, hopefully i would be able to work it out by then.

Did you listen to the Original of Rachmaninoff?I just downloaded the song and listened to it. Damn, it's so fucking fast!!!!!!!!!!!!
This tab it's just the half truth. It doesn't look that hard, but listen to the original. There are some notes more. ;)

Tattered 2003-05-23 11:22

What?! Rachiwahoo?!

Def 2003-05-23 12:19

tune up to ADGC ;)

you can't reach that height in normal tuning, so its either tuning up or playing it a string higher in normal tuning.

Tattered 2003-05-24 02:07

Ok im taking your advice def, but can u display a tab for this tuning?

Also this guy who tabbed and performed this is amazing, mp3 takes 20 secs to download

Cheers :beer::beer:

that thing beats me... :( i consider myself a fast player, n my lead guitarerro is even faster, but none of us can play this that friggin least not the whole thing :D

Def 2003-05-25 04:58

the trick is using all 4 your fingers, I'm not playing it with a pick because the changing from string to string takes too long (yes this is goddamn fast!)

anyways, tuning up to ADGC makes your strings waaay to tight it plays like shit so I just played it in normal tuning.

I think the Manowar bass player plays it...
search in the net
