China Grove Bass Tab

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
			     CHINA GROVE - Doobie Brothers
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Staceman
e-mail: staceman@gmail.com

Tuning: EADG

Notes: Being a beginner bass player, I found the regular tab for China Grove just a tad
difficult. Not to mention, Tiram Porter was one hell of a bass player. So, being unable
to play the bass line to the song to the other tabs out there, I came up with my own
bass line for it, that just happens to fit the song rather well. I repeat, THIS IS NOT
THE BASS LINE FROM THE ORIGINAL SONG, so if you're looking for that, look at one of the
other tabs out there for it. This is just a simpler, alternative bass line for beginners
 or, for anyone else out there needing to learn this song fast, but finding it 
Enjoy.


Intro (rest for the first part. This part normally doesn't come till the second time
around, but not having a keyboard player, this little riff fills in nicely)

More Notes:

- On the Intro, when you're doing the 9's, count each note, like, 1-2-3-4-1-2-3-4, and 
more emphasis on the first note each time.

- The "5h7-5" on the A string in the Verse, can be tried on the D string, if you think 
makes it sound any better.

- The E:5h7,a:5h7, can be used as a little fill, to start any of the parts of the song 
it sorta stops, except for the Bridge.
