Bass Tab 2013

Bass Tab 2013There are several approaches to learning  the latest hit songs. The first, my favorite, is to lift the tune by ear. I enjoy the challenge of this approach,  even though I might not get it all right in one try. I think it helps me get a grasp on the structure of a song.

Another way to go is to  have your teacher help you work it out, taking advantage of their “Lifting” skills and experience.

Lastly, you can always get a music book with everything all worked out for you! You can  even use such a book to make a few corrections if you have attempted the first two approaches.

Lets have a quick look at Bass Tab 2013 from Hal Leonard publishing… 

You get the music in both standard notation and Tab’s for 12 of the hottest commercial hits of 2013.

Here is the list:

Blurred  Lines                                 Robin Thicke

Daylight                                           Maroon 5

Get Lucky                                        Daft Punk featuring Pharrell Williams

The Hangman’s Body Count       Volbeat

Just Give Me A Reason                Pink featuring Nate Ruess

Locked out of Heaven                  Bruno Mars

Next To Me                                    Emile Sande

Panic Station                                 Muse

Radioactive                                    Imagine Dragons

Still into You                                 Paramore

Suit & Tie                                       Justin Timberlake

We Are Young                               Fun featuring Janelle Monae

The only thing I would have liked would have been a CD to go with this music, but as they are popular tunes you can get the ones you like easily enough on your own.

If you are adding some 2013 hits to your set list, this might be the book for you.
