Bob Bogle's Wipeout solo
« on: February 04, 2012, 12:46:46 pm »
I'm learning bass in my free time when I'm not learning guitar. I can sort of keep up on Wipeout on my Squier Vintage Modified J-Bass, but I can't really make out what Bob is doing in his famous Wipeout solo. I would appreciate help. Hs someone ever tabbed it?

On another note, I bought the J-Bass for the neck and sound options, but usually feed mine through a BOSS RV-5 reverb pedal set to Hall or Mod because it makes the bass twang. That sounds soooo cool.

Unfortunately that version isn't on YouTube, but this similar one by Bob Spalding is. It's close but doesn't have the frenzy of B. Bogle's version. I confess I just play the Bat Man TV theme instead. It's fun but nothing like what I'd like to do. Thanks.

Much of what Bob's playing is simply varitations in C major scales.  As a bass and lead guitar player best advise I could give you is to learn the positions on the neck.  If you really like Bob's W/O solo, learn to play those scales all the way up the neck.  The more you play, the quicker you'll get up to speed literally.

Regardless of who you're trying to emulate, it's more than just playing the correct notes.  It's just as much about WHERE on the neck the notes are being played.

Here's an example of a guy who has a nice instructional video.  He's got the notes correct, but pays little if any attention to position.
I dunno if that's intentional to keep things EZ or not.
