                L.A. WOMAN Bass Tab by The Doors

This is a great bass song (whether you are a Doors fan or not). The bass parts on the first
Doors album were played on keyboard by Ray Manzarek, but a different studio bassist was used
on every album thereafter. This song comes from the album "L.A. Woman" which featured one
of the greatest studio bassists of the time, Jerry Scheff. Jerry's bass lines on this album
clearly make the songs what they are. In fact, the Doors were so impressed with him that they
approached him to join the band - as a permanent member. Unfortunately, Morrison died prior


Tuning: EADG

Time signature: 8/8

r = rest (listen for duration)
h = hammer on
/ = slide (low to high)
\ = slide (high to low)
()= note inside parenthesis not plucked or hammered on
{}= note inside pointed parenthesis still ringing from previous measure
: = tempo change indicator (w/notation above)

* My tabs are meant to be read in conjunction with listening to the song. In other words,
there are no specific notations to account for note / rest duration. However, you will find that
I’ve made an attempt to strategically space the notes and rests within their respective measures
in order to represent the appropriate durations.
