Weekly Basslines #147: Cold As Ice (Foreigner)

The view from my window this morning:


Ice and snow...
This inspired me to do another transcription of a bassline from a bassplayer, who passed away in 2014.

Ed Gagliardi died at the age of only 62 on May 11th after losing his eight year battle against cancer.
He only played on two albums with Foreigner: the 1977 debut "Foreigner" and the second album "Double Vision" (1978).
"Cold As Ice" from the debut album became one of the group's best know songs and was in fact also the first song I ever heard from Foreigner. 






I already transcribed "Feels Like The First Time" last year as part of a basslesson about slash chords and chord inversions. Take a look!
