                TALKING HEADS - Seen and Not Seen
Written by David Byrne (bass by Tina Weymouth)

"Seen and Not Seen," like the rest of the album,
is simply patterns build on patterns.
There's just one bass pattern (two figures):

Bass enters at 4th measure and plays this figure 

3x:
    q  q  s  s  Q     q  q  h   
G------r--------r--|-----r-----|
D4:----e--------e--|-----e-----|
A4:-5--s--7--7--s--|--5--s-----|
E------t--------t--|-----t--0--|

On the 4th time through, play:
    q  q  s  s  e  q     q  q  s e  s  p s                            
G------r--------r--r--|-----r--p----r--7h9--|
D4:----e--------e--e--|-----e--7h9--e-------|
A4:-5--s--7--7--s--s--|--5--s-------s-------|
E------t--------t--t--|-----t-------t-------|

That's it. The pops are optional, but sound nice.
                                                                      

And, of course, the standard spiel:
