    Here is a transcription of one of my favourite tunes.
    No Doubt covered this a few years back (up a semitone IIRC)

    Probably the best bass line ever.

    I really like them. One of the first records I ever bought was 12" of "Life's What You Make It"

    Dad had earlier stuff so yeah an influence on me in some ways. Quite a dark band, melancholy vibe. Loved that they did their own thang and the principle songwriter just gave up on the Music Business.

    We cover this with our band. The bass line is SICK, it's almost an exerciser for the fingers.

    I used to play that one on my Corvette Fretless 4 but I couldn’t find anyone else who wanted to cover it. The bass line sounds like it could be done on a Fretless- yeah but it is one sick one that took a bit to sort out all those notes just before the chorus -

    On fretless it would be one serious challenge.

    +1 It is one of those lines I have an obsession with, so I use it when I am out of shape (like now), and need to get into the ZONE, and spend hours and hours playing the same shit over and over.

    Thanks for the transcription, mate!
