I Wanna Be Adored Bass Tabs

Introduction

‘I Wanna Be Adored’ is one of the most iconic songs to come out of the late 1980s and early 1990s Manchester scene. The Stone Roses’ debut album, released in 1989, is considered by many to be one of the greatest albums of all time. Johnny Marr’s jangly guitar work and the tight rhythm section provided by Gary ‘Mani’ Mounfield on bass and Reni on drums set the band apart from their peers.

In this tutorial, we’ll focus on the bass line that drives ‘I Wanna Be Adored’. The bass plays a pivotal role in the song, creating a driving rhythm that sets the pace for the whole band. Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced bass player, you’ll be able to learn how to play the bass line with our easy-to-follow bass tabs.

How to Play I Wanna Be Adored on Bass

Before we dive into the bass tabs, it’s worth listening to the song a few times to get a feel for the rhythm. The bass line is deceptively simple, but Mani’s groove and timing are essential in creating the song’s hypnotic mood.

The main riff is played throughout the song, with some small variations towards the end:

G|-------------------------------
D|-------7-----7-----5-----5-----
A|---5h8---5h8---3h6---3h6-------
E|-------------------------------
				

Start with the open A string and then hammer on to the 8th fret. This is followed by a quick succession of notes on the D and A strings. Use your index and middle fingers to play the notes on the A string and your index and ring fingers to play the notes on the D string.

After playing this riff for a few bars, there’s a small variation in the second half:

G|-------------------------------
D|-------7-----7-----5-----5h7p5-
A|---5h8---5h8---3h6---3h6-------
E|-------------------------------
				

On the last note of the riff, slide down to the 5th fret on the D string and then play the note at the 7th fret with a quick hammer on and pull off. Rinse and repeat!

There’s also a bridge section in the song where the bass plays a different riff:

G|------------------
D|------------------
A|------------------
E|---7--7--7--7--7--
				

This riff is played using only the E string, with a quick succession of notes played with your index and middle fingers.

The bass line in ‘I Wanna Be Adored’ is a great example of how a simple riff can elevate a song to greatness. By paying attention to the timing and feel of the song, you’ll be able to play the bass line with the right amount of groove and attitude.
