Speedin' Back to My Baby bass tab

SPEEDIN' BACK TO MY BABY (from the KISS CD "ACE FREHLEY")
--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com

Tuned down 1/2-step

Comments: Once again it's Ace on the bass. It's in the same vein as his other
bass-playing adventures. He uses mainly swing eights and a couple of eight-note
triplets for this part. The octave work in the chorus is something he uses,
along with the arpeggiation of a power chord, a lot on the bass. Love that
little eight-note triplet thing right before the solo. And the slide from C to
G in the last chorus is really cool. Nice change of octaves and an increase in
rhythmic activity there to add a little urgency to the end.
