Here’s a video showing how to play bass to Paint It Black by The Rolling Stones.:
Paint It Black has essentially got three sections to look at and learn.
There’s the Verse, the Chorus, and the ‘Outro’ Section.
Here’s how you combine the parts together to play through the song:
Intro – Guitar, then 2 bars of drums and bass comes in for 2 bars (use basic B to E 8th note pattern from the verse section)
Verse 1 – use verse pattern
Chorus 1 – use chorus pattern
Verse 2 – use verse pattern
Chorus 2 – use chorus pattern
Verse 3 – verse with just vocal – play a stab on Beat 1 then don’t play until the chorus
Chorus 3 – use chorus pattern
Verse 4 – use verse pattern
Chorus 4 – use chorus pattern
