Learn the bass line from The Police classic, ‘Message In A Bottle.’

The main riff is so fun to play and I love the Reggae inspired chorus bass line. 

There is a free PDF with the video lesson.  Choose between standard notation or Tab versions.

Other stuff was a lot more ‘reggae-inspired’...surely?

Yes you are right, there is loads of Reggae influence on The Police songs.  

I do love the Reggae style bass line in the chorus for this song though.

      Hello I was looking for the BASS tabs for Fleetwood Mac's Rhiannon song.  i have found two that were not correct and although I'm trying to pick up by ear and watching several videos I am still struggling.  As a new bass player I am just trying to make sure I am right.  Thanks for info you can send in advance!!

      Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounders - £80 ONO inc. postage
      Still attached to the Squier pots if you want them

      Bridge pup, Fender Standard - £35 £30 £25 inc. postage
      AFAIK is the same pup in both USA and MIM Standard. A quick search tells me it was used in the Road Worn, Classic 60's and earlier Hwy 1 series. Bobbin says 048613.

      Bluegrass is a style that needs a bass player with great feel and a solid sound. 
      Traditional Bluegrass would be played on upright bass but it does work on electric bass too, with the right approach. 
      Learn how to put this into practice with pivotal bluegrass bass techniques. 
      In the video you also get to listen to a full Bluegrass band covering a Union Station song.
