/ The Cure / Staring At The Sea (The Singles) (1986) / Other Voices bass tab

"Other Voices" by The Cure from Staring at the Sea--The Singles


Here's another cool bassline from that favorite band of mine. I think a pick might be used, so use so if you desire. I tried to be as accurate notewise as I could. Also listen closely to the rhythm in case I put too many #'s.
4/4 time, B minor


wait until after intro...1st note on a pick-up...


figure 1--repeat 8 times


G---|---------------|-------------------|
D---|---------------|-------------------|
A---|----------5----|-------------------|
E-5-|-7--7-7-7----0-|-2--2-2-2-3--2-0-5-|


figure 2--substitute 1st note of this figure with last note of figure one on the 8th time 

G---|------------------|--------------------|-----------------|---------------------|
D---|------------------|--------------------|-----------------|---------------------|
A-5-|-7--7-7-7-----2-|-4--4-4-4-5-4-2-5-|-7--7-7-7----2-|-4--4-4-4-5-4------|
E---|-------------3----|--------------------|------------3----|------------------2-5-|


repeat figure 1 4 times.... keep playing figure 1 on 1st verse--"whisper you name..."


figure 3--verse 1


G-------------------|--------------------|-----------------|------------------|
