Draw 4 horizontal lines on a piece of paper.

Pick up your bass.

Listen to a little of the song.

Play what you hear on your bass.

Write the fret number for the note on the line that represents the string you are playing.

Repeat until you have gone through the entire recording.

Transfer what you have done to your computer so you can post it for others.

 

Sorry for being so sarcastic, but you don't need TAB.

 

Use your ears. Learn/use REAL notation. Write it out. Not only will it make you a better musician, but by the time you listen to it and transcribe it, you'll have it memorized.

Seriously, though...if you can't listen to the song, & you need to get some sense of the notes NOW (I've been in this situation, on rare occasion), you can do a Google search for it. But it's probably going to be mostly wrong, anyway.

 

Your best bet is to figure it out by ear. (E.g. iTunes will sell the song to you for $1 if you don't have a copy.) And in the long run, your VERY best bet is to learn to write & read in standard notation. Then you'll be able to write down any song you want, & there will be no question how it's to be played.

I thought that the real problem was that he wants to cover a Kajagoogoo song.

Good one Justin :D:thu::D

 

Everyone is right though, to at least some extent. Write it down by using your ear. Either TAB or standard notation.

 

Guys, it would take him longer to learn standard notation than to tab out the song, and apparently he does want to learn to play it soon :)

It's a LOT easier to play than it may sound. There are two (maybe more) bass tracks in the original recording. It's a good song to learn for broadening your range of styles.

 

Let's give him a simple start.

 

Chorus. 2 beats per chord.

 

D - C - F - A

For the C, the bass plays G or C.
