/ The Cure / Staring At The Sea (The Singles) (1986) / Charlotte Sometimes bass tab

"Charlotte Sometimes"--bassline--by the Cure from "Staring at the Sea--The Singles"


This bassline is interesting cuz it's constantly moving & the pattern changes somewhat unexpectedly, but once you learn it, it comes along alot easier. The pattern may be hard to follow, so just learn the figures first, then listen to the song a few times, & then try & fit in the patterns. I hope I have all the strokes right, there might be a couple more strokes missing, but all the notes should be right.
