Yellow

The first song on the  Play Bass in 50 Songs – Rock list is Yellow by Coldplay. Paul Wolfe writes:

A nice simple line to get started with.

And so it is. Consisting of only 2 sections and using just 5 notes in total on a straightforward quaver/eighth-note rhythm, this is close to as easy as it gets.

Finbar of finbarbass has a tutorial for Yellow here. However, the way I finger the verse part of the song is shown in the tab that accompanies this play-along by Enrique Cabelo.

The official video for Yellow is here.

And that should be everything you need to master this song’s bass part.

Have fun y’all.
