"Dove" by Cymande Bass Tab

Tabbed by James S.

11 minute song with many changes and a lot of progression. Also
licks are replayed but sometimes paired, sometimes not. To top
it off some of the basic notes (ie. the 4th fret on the A string)
are tuned to the same pitch as one of the percussion instruments
so it's easy to get confused as to what is a bass note and what
is percussion. Because of that and the frequency in which the bass
changes, instead of *just* writing each line and then a multiplier

(ie.

G-----4---4---6------|
D--6----6---6---6----|  x31
A-----------------4--|
E--------------------|
)

I wrote out the entire lick progressions so that those of you
that want to follow the song note by note -can-, AND made a
notation in the song at each bass change with a listed
multiplier for the number of times for you play a part for
those of you that don't want to read through all of it. Time
stamps are included for reference in case you get lost.

Good luck!

Bass Change:  (1:30) 17 pairs *Slow Basic Lick*
              *Tamborine starts here*

*note: this is the basic line used in this song, but it comes
 in two different variations. The slow basic lick has fewer notes,
 different stresses, and different intervals. Listen to the song
 to pick up on the changes and watch for my notation at each
 change as to which version is being played.*

Bass Change: (2:45) 4 pairs
*note: You may want to try 6p4 on the G string. In the song they
are being strummed seperately but also muted to avoid making the
song muddy. 6p4 is much easier and solves that problem for you.*
