One day like this - Elbow. Bassline query..

Recommended Posts

Options:

F root - octave throughout (really?) until "Throw those curtains wide..." outro, when you play root - octave for the F, Eb, Bb sequence

or

Play root-octave for the F, Bb, C (G?), Bb sequence in the verses, F root-octave between verses, then root-octave for the F, Eb, Bb sequence in the "Throw those curtains wide ..." outro.

 

Personally, I prefer the second approach, but the "official" bassline seems to be the first one. What do we think?

Option one, mainly because in the original song the bass line supports the string section.

I always went for option one, mainly because this makes the outro more impactive.

I recall that Elbow's bass player plays a keyboard on this one live.
