1 Bass Tab

   
"1999"
by Prince (now known as O(+>, The Artist)
from the album 1999
original bass player on the album: none other then O(+> himself
original bass player in concerts at that time:  Dez
arranged for bass tab by Jean-Michel Baker

here is 1999 by The Artist from his Prince days, most of the Revolution play
on this album.
this song sounds better played an 8ve lower, which can b done by using an
upright bass setting on a digital mixer through an amp, but it really doesn't
make that much of a difference.

intro: 
this is how i play the intro.   if u went an extended intro add the 2nd part
on2 the end of the 1st.

    w +  h + q   s s  s s   w+w         2nd part:      w+h  + q   s  s s s

measures r different each time, so i'm not going 2 recopy the 3rd measure
every time
