Hi,

I've been working out the bass section of 'Brighter than Sunshine' by Aqualung.

I'm having trouble notating the bass in the 19th bar onwards. I can play it and I can 'feel' it, but when I try to put it down on paper, it escape me.

That section starts around 1:07, a link to the song:

Please help!

You are what they call a “rhythm guitarist”. While it's not as glamorous as playing lead you can still get laid. Especially if you can sing and play.

Pop on a metronome and play it as slow as you possibly can. That's always helped me for learning songs and tabbing out my own.

One crotchet, one dotted quaver followed by a semiquaver, then two quavers each with a staccato. Then a crotchet rest. Tempo is at roughly 76 crotchets a minute. This should get you started.

I actually wrote it out for you but the dimensions of the image was too big for UG restrictions.

Must have not been doing this for too long. I figured out the tempo to be around 75 as well, but for some reason I decided to transcribe it at 110bpm. Managed to get it to fit but with each measure becoming 1.5 measures.

A transcription at 110bpm is equally valid, it's just that the rhythms will be f***ed.

Thanks guys! I really appreciate it!
