Can anyone help with the TAB for Uncle Jakes Upright Bass Lick at 2.03
basically straight up the G scale with a C# added in.
Didn’t hear him play a note on the last strum but you could add in an open G on the first string (G) for a final note.
Thanks Dave that’s a great help. All I got to do now is figure out how to emulate the slaps to help out with the timing
brushed snare if available maybe, or a low EQed wood block?
That last note looks like an open G. Watch his hand open up on that last note.
yes, as I explained. you can’t hear it but you could play it.
I didn’t think it was necessary to include it in my example, as it’s simply an open G during the last strum, following the high G which I’m sure Archie can handle tabbing.
So this is what I came up with. It doesn’t sound 100% but it’s close. G B C C# up octave D Eb E G any suggestions as to how I might improve it welcomed

I’d suggest if you want exactly what he did it would go D, E, F#, high G, then G open first sting (octave lower) for last note during strum.
notice that the D E F# G is all within the G scale…
the next suggested alternate, if you wanted to end up on the high G for the finish strum note, would be to go chromatic on the last 4 notes. as in… D, E, F, F#, G , but the F# may sound out of place beijing that long of a note.
try this maybe…
Thanks Dave I’ll give all the options a try.
