"Brothers on the Slide" by Cymande bass tab


The bass line for this song works a bit different than most.
That is to say that there isn't a set bass line.  There is a
'basic' bass lick, and several embelleshed versions that are
thrown into to keep it interesting. As such, you can attempt
to follow along with which particular lick is played or use
whichever one you want and still get the same result.
Good fun to play.

When playing simply play the lick you feel like at the moment.
If you want to play the Basic Lick every time or the Guitar Lick
every time; you'll be able to stay with the song as they are all
interchangeable. Play what you want and have fun.  Here is the
album version for those of you that want to match the CD as
closely as possible. Enjoy!

*note* Song is divided into lines of 4 except for a 2 lick pairing
right after the first chorus and right before the bass breakdown
near the end.
