I don't have a recording of this song (any version of it). If I can find it, I'll take a listen tonight and see about putting together a quick transcription. I'm in a 'caring and sharing' sort of mood today for some reason.

With all the talent in this forum there must be someone who has a reasonable transcription of the intro to the Carly Simon song, "You're So Vain"?


It was played by Klaus Voorman and has a kinda triplet thing - almost flamenco guitar thing going on in the bass.


I would almsost pay to see it written out!

Except that it's played looser (or you could say sloppier) than it's written here.


Send me a check! :D

Beat me to it. I actually downloaded the song last night and listened to it. Sounds like the bassist is using a pick to get that 'looser' feel (see: sloppy execution). Maybe also hitting the E in there occasionally when switching between the octave A's by mistake(?) or just as a grace note.
