Rhythm Stick tab (Ian Dury)

I don't have a tab, but because of the number of requests Norman recorded his bassline for us all to download and copy. It must therefore be the 'definitive' version. 99% of tabs I've seen are wrong.

I'd love to give it a go - used to read when I played cello but that was about 30 years ago :)

Chris, a switched on BassChatter has suggested posting the transcription here for all to have a go at. Guess what.... it includes the tab. I didn't spot that as I was reading the dots.

Thanks

I have a bass and bassless backing track for this if you are interested.

Cheers for the transcription posting.

Just found a couple of things on it that might be worth pointing out...

in bar 2 after the F to Ab hammer on the Bb hammers on to C before the Eb staccato sixteenths.

Anyone else hear this?
