I've never seen it published. We play it in E, so the chords are like E,
A, and B. The trick is the "chicken picking" speed. So, if you already
know a walking bass line in E, then just triple your notes and "chicken
pick it" for that Commander Cody feel.
Rather than do TAB, we have a nifty guitar notation that might work. I'm
a TAB user myself, but I find typing it to be cumbersome so this notation
is a fairly decent substitution.
first number = string/second number = fret
B B! B! 6/3 (bend full)
Don't stop driving that Hot Rod Lincoln
6/0+++ 6/3 (hammer on) 6/4++ 5/2+++ 5/4 (pull off) 5/2
5/0+++ 5/3 (h.o.) 5/4++ 4/2+++ 4/4 (p.o.) 4/2
5/2+++ 4/1+++ 4/4++ 3/1 4/4
4/2++ 5/4++ 5/2++ 6/4++ (start again at 6/0)
I'm not sure if I really "pick" each note the number of times (denoted by
the ++++) I wrote, but I just play that basic walking bass pattern and
pick the heck out of it.
