    why not post the notation and tab?

      There’s no tab or notation for this one because there’s nothing to play on bass. It’s mental practice, not bass practice.

    There are many, free to download apps for PC, that will easily help you determine the tempo of your favourite song. You simply tap the space bar (or some other key) along with the beat of the song. The program will count the taps over time and determine the BPM. Not sure what’s available for mobile devices though. One such program is at and there are lots of others.
    Thanks for the lessons. I really enjoy your site.
