Post Your Basslines

Hey all, I'm just curious as to what some of my fellow bass players create. Feel free to share something you've wrote or comment on others.

I'll start us off:

G--4---4---------4---4-----------4---4---------4---4-----------
D--2---2-02h3p2-2---2--02h3p2--2---2-02h3p2-2---2--02h3p2--
A---------------------------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------------------------------
B---------------------------------------------------------------

G--5---5---------5---5---------5---5---------5---5--------
D--3---3-03h4p3-3---3-03h4p3-3---3-03h4p3-3---3-0-3-5--
A----------------------------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------------------------


G-----------------------------------------10p9-9p7-7p5-3p0-5--
D--7---7-0-5-7--7---7-0-5-7--7---7-x-x-x-------------------3--
A---------------------------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------------------------------
B---------------------------------------------------------------

I wrote this just recently. It's moderatly slow and not to difficult. I hope to see someone respond.

It may look familiar, but...lol

Okay, I know I've posted this tab once before, in the tapping thread, but here it is again, for those that never thought about it...

I play this in a 6/4 time with a triplet feel. When you reach the end of the second bar, repeat the whole thing once. (If you look in the "post YOUR band" thread, there's a link to the song where it's used, it's at the end of the song)

Enjoy

C ------5-----------5----------------8----------- (left ring finger)
G --7-----7-----7-----7-------10-------10-------- (right middle finger)
D ----7-----7-----7-----7--------10-------10----- (right index finger)
A 5-----------5-------------8-------------------- (left index finger)
E ------------------------------------------------
B ------------------------------------------------


C ------4-----------4--------------7------------- (left ring finger)
G --6-----6-----6-----6-------9------9----------- (right middle finger)
D ----6-----6-----6-----6-------9------9--------- (right index finger)
A 4-----------4-------------7-------------------- (left index finger)
E ------------------------------------------------
B ------------------------------------------------

As soon as I get a bit of time on my hands (lol) I'll take the time to tab out some more of our stuff. Not tapping, but some very interesting runs and riffs.

Cheers

I liked Sodomaniac's little bit. I haven't gotten a chance to try the others.

Summer break is coming up so I'll have a few to put up in a day or so.

Tattered, I guess you were right about guitarists not hearing any good bass players. Good call my friend.

D---0--0--0--0--0--0---0--0--0--0--0--0--
A------------------------------------------
E------------------------------------------
B------------------------------------------

It kinda has the same ambient effect as the bass intro to Led Zeppelin's Kashmir.
