My City Was Gone

This Pretneders song has a clever and driving bassline. I have considered 3 or 4 different fingerings, but none of them work well for me.

How do YOU play it?

What do you think about:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------7—8—9------------------6------6-----6/-------------------7—8—9---------6-------6------6/---------------
---2-------0-----------------7--------7------7------7----------2-----0------------------7-------7-------7--------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Cause at the end of

---6 --- 6 --- 6/ slide back towards 2 on A string, I feel I'm in the right position
7 ---7 ---7

of course I'm going by ultimate guitar, but he plays 7-5 on E string

Yeah, that's the one I've settled on. I tried keeping the riff closer to the nut, which helps with some flairs, but leaves out the slide down.

i'm guessing, without listening to the song, that if most of the riff is at the 7th fret, that that 2-0 on the A string is actually a 7-5 on the E string. yep. just found the video. watch his hands. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HA56J8zlAdo
