Hosanna (Bass)

By James

The bass line of Hillsong United's Hossana is pretty simple. As cmorales said on the forum, its just root notes and fill ins' so i'm sure you'll work this out in no time. My video is incomplete but i'm sure you'll have an idea on how the bass line goes.

Dude, nice tabs..but in the chorus you enter into G#m and others, u're faster than the worship leader, quite messy. Watch out for the beats, it can get quite tricky at times. Watch the video on Youtube and train according to the bass beat. :)

A few things are wrong

The verse chords are
E C# F# B

The second line of the first chorus should have the C# and B reversed

The second chorus is the same as the first just an octave lower
G# A B C# A C# B
G# A B C# A B C#

The bridge should be
A B E C# A B C#

yah yur way off on the timing in the chorus, sorry to be mean and say it again, but if people really trying to learn this song watch this they might copy it, which would not be good

But louis vuitton handbags doesn’t recommend this kind of product simply for the reason that the Speedy bag isn’t meant to retain its shape.It is Louis Vuitton which has always been seated on top of the trends. The time had gone by even at that time, she succeeded in coping with this problem. The jewelry is designed for men and cute as the same time.
