how do i get the tone of the simple but super smooth bass line...i mean the tab on this site has it played with some open notes on the bottom two strings so im tryin to find out why it sounds so much like it being played all the way up on a high fret


whats the effects combo or is the tab just way off

this tab?? or the other one? and i assume you know you can substitute an open string for the 5th fret of the string below it?? eg 0 fret (open) on A string=5th fret on E string? so you can do that with all frets, and playing those higher frets up around 12-17 frets can make a a huge tonal difference.

The first post sounds slightly like a troll, but i also spend way too much time on 4chan where everyone is always trolling...

so the tab says this

G|-------------------------7-5----------------------------------------------|
D|-7------------7-0-----7--------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

but if you play this it may be closer to what your looking for... i know very little by santana so i dont know if his bassisr uses effects...

G|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------12--10---------------------------------------|
A|--12--------12------12---------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------10--------------------------------------------------------|

or

G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------17-15------------------------------------------|
E|-17---------17--10-----17--------------------------------------------------------|

hopefully this solves it.
