Look to You (Bass)

By Bass Levite



To get it to sound right, you need to use a combination of left hand muting and playing some notes with the middle part of your third finger. This may take some practise. Notes in <> are played with the middle part of the third finger.

Intro
------------------------------
-------3-3-3----------3-3-3---
-1-1-1-------3--1-1-1-------3-
------------------------------


Verse
-3-3-----------<5>----------
----------h<5*>-----5-------
-----3h5*------------1---1--
-----------------------1----

-3-3----------<5>---------
---------h<5>-----5-------
-----3h5------------1---1-
----------------------1---

---------------
---------------
--------1(x16)-
-3(x16)--------

The notes in * are played relatively softly, not full-on hammered. Just touching it. Although it's soft, they are essential to create a "smooth" transition from the low C to the middle C; mimicking a slide. This is a useful skill to learn if you want to go up one octave smoothly and fast. Sliding is slower and more prone to error because it involves movement of the arm.

On the second day, slipping deeper into the coma, Me discovers that he is isolated from the world and facing his very own emotions. The sudden fear of Me, his fear of being alone provokes Fear (Mikael Ã…kerfeldt), confirming Me's suspicions. Then, in his internal struggle, Me faces Reason (Eric Clayton) and through this, Passion (Irene Jansen) surfaces. As Me drives to despair, Pride (Magnus Ekwall) encourages him otherwise. Love (Heather Findlay) comforts Me, in attempt to ready him to his first ordeal.
