Songs Figured Out

After several years of barely touching my bass guitar at all, this year I started playing again and somehow I magically had the ability to figure out and play along with songs. Now I practice a couple of times a week by putting on iTunes Party Shuffle and playing along with whatever comes up. If something is especially fun (like OSCA by Tokyo Jihen), I’ll devote a few sessions to getting it right. In other cases, I’ll just write down whatever I can make out and then move on. In case anyone is searching for bass tabs of songs by Judy and Mary, Harada Ikuko, clammbon, YUKI, Shiina Ringo, or other such unlikely acts, I’ve started posting my notes online.
