Cher "Bang Bang"

Post  Nocturnal_Pulse on Sat Feb 02, 2013 11:21 pm

OK I feel stupid.

I can't find any tabs and I can't seem to "get" the notes played.

Any help? :/

I wouldn't get your hopes up, I spent a solid minute wondering why no sound was coming out the headphone amp... I'd forgotten to plug it in Razz

LOL.

I think the first riff is E.

The open E? or on the D the 2nd fret?

Hmm :/

RIGHTY

You'll need to tune your E string down to C#. You could tune all your other strings down a tone (GCF) to put it in Drop C# if you want, but I don't think that's necessary.

Then, when it kicks in, play the 5th fret (F#). When it changes, play the 3rd (E), then when it changes again, play the open string (...guess). At 1:11ish, when he plays that note on the off-beat, that's an E.

At 1:45ish, you play A, hold it... then the next note is F# again, then D, then B. This is why I don't think downtuning the rest of the strings is necessary - you can just use 5th on the C# string for the F# and play the others on the strings above.

2:08ish: A, F, G, EGA. That then repeats. (edit: this riff happens three times - on the fourth, when you're supposed to hit the G, play E instead, and hold it until the main riff) After that, it's back to the main riff. After it cuts out at 2:45-ish, you come back in on the E.

I think there are some variations, but that's the gist of it Very Happy

(had to edit a few errors Razz)

Well you only need it for the C# - you could play the 4th fret on the A instead, but it doesn't sound as good imo Razz

Or you could play the whole thing an octave higher? I've done that on occasion. I've also played a D# in How You Remind Me an octave higher just so I don't have to downtune. It still sounded good when I added a bit of spice to it Smile

So I could transfer my C# on the D, 6th fret, right?

Tried it right, expressed it wrong.

My sound card came with software that lets me mess around with the EQ, so I boost the bass in order to hear it better Very Happy

Or you could just open winamps EQ Laughing
Thought, most of the time the bass is just so well buried in the mix that you can't quite get to it Evil or Very Mad
