Here’s a video showing how to play bass to Brown Sugar by The Rolling Stones:
This version of Brown Sugar has essentially got five sections to look at.
There’s the Intro, the Verse, The Chorus, the Interlude and the Outro.
Here’s a quick road map:
Interlude – 4 bars played once
Sax Solo – Interlude – 4 bars played FOUR times
In the video I’m going to show you a version of the bass line that will work for most cover band’s version of the tune – Bill Wyman’s actual line is much subtler than you think. (As is Bill Wyman’s bass playing).
