Song  : This Train Don't Stop There Anymore
Artist: Elton John
Album : Song From The West Coast
Tabber: James Pucyk (pucyk_james@hotmail.com

Elton and Barry Turpin have come up with some gems over the years and this one is
no exception. Elton John's bassist I think has been with him since the early days
and he comes up with some great shit. The thing that caught me about this bassline
is the taseful nature of it, which I guess is the kind of playing style I'm trying
to adopt as completly as possible. This is a great example of a bassline which is
melodic and builds with an equal amount of emotional fury as the other insturments
but holds the rhythm.                            ENJOY
