Here’s what the guitar and bass sound like together:
For the first and second measures – here you will need to play the seventh fret with your 3rd finger on the “G” string. Barre your 1st finger on the fifth fret on the “B” string and the “high E” string. Allow all notes to ring. Follow the tablature as well as possible, because every note with Pink Floyd counts!
The third and fourth measure – for this measure you are doing just what you did in measures one and two, but on the ninth and seventh frets. There is no change whatsoever in these measures.
The fifth and sixth measure – for the fifth measure, you will need to place your 2nd finger on the tenth fret on the “G” string, your 3rd finger on the tenth fret on the “B” string, and your 1st finger on the ninth fret on the “high E” string. Play as shown on the tablature.
The seventh and eighth measure – for these measures, barre your 1st finger on the seventh frets on the “G” string, the “B” string, and the “high E” string. You will need to place your 2nd finger on the eighth fret on the “B” string also though. Play according to the tablature.
The ninth and tenth measures – these measures are the same as the first and second measures.
The following measures are identical:
The first through eighth measures and the tenth measure – all of these measures are primarily the same, but there are a few measures that require you to play a few strings a few more times. The overall arrangement stays the same though.
Play these measures by placing your 1st finger on the fifth fret on the “A” string. Place your 4th finger on the seventh fret on the “D” string. That is it for the first eight measures. This is an excellent riff to aid you in learning the steps for playing the bass. Remember, you can play these notes on any guitar because the lowest four strings on the guitar are the same as the bass.
For the ninth measure, you will need to slide on the “D” string toward the tuning pegs on the bass. Play the twelfth fret on that string with any finger.
At the end of the tenth measure, all you need to do is use your 1st finger to play the “E” string on the fifth fret to end the measure.
