I've now completed 100 tabs for the UG site. I never thought I would ever get this far. What started as a simple task to tab a few Soft Cell songs has flourished into me tabbing quite a few songs from a various amount of artists. It's been for the most part fun, but frustrating too Still no pain, no gain!
I'm not sure how many more tabs I'll get to submit but there are plenty more songs I want to try & work out. I hope the tabs I've submitted are helpful & enjoyable.
I have now reached the magic 50 with Bass tab submissions. I'm quite pleased that I have done so many as I never thought I would get past 20!
I will plod along & hopefully get a few more done before 2013 ends.
The latest additions accepted this week are by Soft Cell, Clio & The Human League.
It's been a while since I last wrote but I'm still tabbing! Since my last blog in May I've added my first ever Duran Duran bass tab which I'm really happy about. I have 2 more tabs by Andy Taylor & I have managed 3 tabs by the main bass man himself, Mr. John Taylor from his debut solo album. Also added are 2 more by Talk Talk, 1 more by Icehouse, 5 more by Simple Minds & a few more by Soft Cell. Every so often I look back over my tabs to check them out especially after I've listened to a song at home. I'm always listening to a bassline & every so often I hear something different than I have done before. In total I have tweaked/altered 3 tabs slightly, these being 70 Cities & Boys From Brazil by Simple Minds & Secret Oktober by Duran Duran. I know for certain there is a Soft Cell tab I will need to alter & I will get to that at some point.
I have added 2 Bass Tabs by Andy Taylor from his "Thunder" album. The songs added are "Night Train" + "Tremblin'". That is 3 AT Bass tabs in total I have submitted from the album to this site. I would like to add more from this album, hopefully quite soon.
I have submitted my second Icehouse Bass tab for the classic "Street Cafe" from the album "Primitive Man". It's another straightforward Bass tab & very easy to play. I'm hoping it's accurate but if not please let me know.
I've added another Thompson Twins bass tab to the site. It's another track from the "Quick Step & Side Kick" album called "Judy Do". As you can tell there are not a lot of tabs on the internet for the Twins & I would like to rectify that in my own small way.
It's a very simple bassline to learn & play, ideal for beginners.
I forgot to mention I did my first venture into submitting chords to the site. As I was working out the bass for "Judy Do" I noticed how easy & straightforward the chords were to this song. I thought it might be fun to get them on the site as I have said before not enough of their tabs are available online to view.
I don't think I'll be supplying any more chords tabs but never say never, they would have to be as easy as "Judy Do".
As it's my first venture into chords territory I hope what I have submitted is accurate. If not please let me know.
This is my first attempt at a Talk Talk bass tab. I've been messing around with a couple of songs of theirs & thought it about time I try & complete one of them. The song I have chosen to tab is "It's So Serious" from their debut album "The Party's Over" from 1982.
I'm pretty certain it's mostly accurate but there are a couple of areas I'm not 100% convinced. The first doubt is in the middle section where there are just 2 bass notes being played. I can't tell if the first of these notes is correct & there is possibly another bass being played in this section buried in the mix. It could be a bass synth confusing me.
The second doubt is the first bass part in the final chorus. Towards the end of that line the bass goes an octave higher, again not sure if I've chosen the right C note but it sounds different compared to other variations through the song.
Maybe I'm being a bit too picky but I would like to tab everything I do as near perfect as possible. Anyone with any updates or corrections please advise
It's nice to get a Talk Talk tab completed as there are not too many of them about online. I would like to tab some more in the future, hopefully sooner rather than later.
