Baby Loves To Rock

Cheap Trick

artist: Cheap Trick song: Baby Loves To Rock album: All Shook Up key: D/b tuning: this song can be done in standard tuning on a four string, granted, it will sound stupid as hell merely because of one low D. I personally am too lazy to tune down, although it only requires doing the E and A's down a whole step, or the E down a whole step for some (I tried this and can't play a scale where the open A is an A and the 5th fret on the E is a G.) Here is the tab in standard tuning for a four string; if you tune down your E and A, just move the numbers up two frets, and play the bass solo an octave lower, starting on the 7th fret of the A string, which'll be a D. Here we go:
(N.C.) More and more I'm thinking about love
(N.C.) Lovin' ain't all I'm a thinking of
(N.C) Some people do and so people don't
(N.C.) Some people will and say they won't
But my (G)baby (D) loves to (A) rock My (G)baby (D)loves to (A)roll My (G)baby (D)loves to (A)all night long My (G)baby (D)loves to (A)rock
second verse
More and more I'm thinking about S-S-S
The more I think, the better is gets More and more I'm a thinking about se-se-se- The more I think, the worse it gets
repeat chorus in the last line of the chorus, instead of the A, go to an E (second fret D string/7th fret A string) and do an E major scale descending one octave to low E.
She loves to rock (another scale) She loves to rock (another scale) She loves to rock (another scale)
third verse
(guitar solo in D, bass and drums silent)
(bass solo!) standard tuning tuned down full step
G--7-6-4---4--------------- | G--7-6-4---4-------------- | D--------7---7-5-4-5-4----- | D--------7---7-5-4-5-4-2-0 | A----------------------7-5- ------------------------------- |
(guitar solo in A)
(guitar solo in D)
repeat chorus, and do the descending scale part again
(D) In the morning in the evening (A) In the summer in the winter (G) in my car in the night (D) in an airplane not in Russia
do the descending scale part of the chorus 4 times
then do the first two lines of the first verse and there you have it
this was a bitch to tab, and I hope I didn't confuse anybody TOO badly question, comments, feedback to -I'm here, I'm queer, I play 5 string bass
