Scritti Politti - The Word Girl Tabs, help!

Recommended Posts

I really really really, lol, want to learn this song, but i'm struggling to find tabs, i found someone who covered it amazingly and in the description of their video tells you what to tune the bass to but he sadly doesnt have tabs, if anyone has tabs or could teach me it be highly appreciated, i adore this song and to be able to play it would mean the world to me, thank you!

Maybe if you use the guitar tab you can find the bass. It doesn't seem to be on the internet. It isn't all that hard so with a bit of practise you could probably work it out. Thats how I learned most of the songs when I was starting out. I had never heard of tabs back then and there was no internet. It's actually a good way of learning songs if you have to find the notes rather than following tab.

I learnt this one recently. It's fun to play in standard tuning, although there is a low D in the outro. Here's a quick take on the tab:

Good work, pineweasel! I love Cupid and Psyche ‘85, great songs on there!

The follow-up, Provision, is amazing too. A really natural progression with some amazing tunes on there.

I'm also desperate to learn this. I love it but just can't get it from scratch. The attachment does not to open anymore. Does anyone else have it?

The link works for me too, but:
It just downloads as a file and is stored in Downloads on my Win10 laptop, without showing its contents on the screen.

Anyway, here's the text I got:

 

Verse (play twice):
G-----------6-4-6-4-----2-1----------------
D-------1-4------------------4--2----------
A--2--2------------------------------------
E---------------------------------0--------

G------------------------------------------
D-----------------------------2------------
A--4---4-4-2--4--4------2-0-4---0---0------
E---------------------------------3--------

Pre-chorus:
G------------------------------------------
D--------2---------------------------------
A--2-0-4---0---0-2-0-----------------------
E------------3-----------------------------

Chorus (play twice), end on an E
G------------------------------------------
D------------------------------------------
A---------2-4-2-----0----------------0-2---
E--0--0-4--------4----4-2--0-2-4---0-------

G----------------------2-------------------
D-----------------5--------0-0-2--0-0-2----
A---------2-4-2------3---------------------
E--0--0-4----------------------------------

Outro, variations on this:
G------------------------------------------
D----------------------------------------0-
A-----2-2----0-0------------------0-0------
E--0-------0-----3-0---0-3-3---------3-0---
