Wild Thing is a relatively easy song for beginers – there are 8 parts to learn (though you could get by with learning less sections and eliminating some of the variation in the original line).
I class this as a Level 3/4 bass line (mainly because of the placement of the second note in each bar plus the 8th notes). (The scale I use is 1 to 10 – a Level 1 bass line might be a predominantly half note ballad kind of line like Imagine and a Level 10 line would be an uptempo 8th note based line like I Saw Her Standing There or Shake A Tailfeather).
Here are the 8 sections:
2. Chorus 1
3. Verse 1
4. Re Intro 1
5. Chorus 2
6. Recorder Solo
There’s a repeat of the Verse after the Recorder solo and then the song picks up again with the next part:
7 – Re Intro 2
8. Outro Chorus
