This is the tab for "tears in the rain" from Joe Satriani's albumn "The
Extremist". I adapted it for bass from the guitar transcription in Guitarist
Magazine.

Its actualy relativly easy (assuming your tapping is up to scratch). Unusualy,
for most of the piece the right hand hould play the notes on the E and A
strings, while the left plays the D and G strings. The exception to this is
the first six bars of the coda, where the E is played by the left hand, and
the rest is tapped. (and the last bar before the DC which should be played
normaly)

The only hard part is the first bar of the coda - the right hand is a bitch. I
play the A string with my thumb, D with my index, and G with my third. Yes this
does feel odd, but its the best I can find.

As usual, let me know if this is of interest to you, and I'll be more likely to
enter more stuff. If you do use it, then you should also feel oblidged to put
something back onto the archive - even if its something trivialy simple. Others
will find it usefull.
