Sweet Jane - Bass Line

Lou Reed
As recorded by Cowboy Junkies


This song is very simple, it's only 3 notes.

Basically, it's D - A - G - A.

you play D-D, D-A-A-G, G-G, G-A-A-D over and over

you may want to slide all on the E string like this.

G
D
A
E 10 10 10\5 5\3 3 3 3/5 5 /10

Note: \ means slide down and / means slide up

I never bothered to figure out the bridge (heavenly wine and roses..) but
you can safely continue to play those three notes, of course in a
different rhythm, which you should be able to pick up by listening to the song.

bbkim's note: check out the guitar tab for pointers on the bridge...
