This is my first bass tab
so i'm not too sure about it....Hope it is correct

The blues bit

The next bit is played by the lead guitar
but I find it cool to play along with it. Learn the sequence
and you'll know where it is in the song.

This is a pretty damn good song in whole
but the bass is too cool. It's tricky to get the right sound
but with time and practice
it will sound right. I find playing the upper-octave notes palm-muted
in a kind of "pinched-harmonic" style gives that right sound...

Hope this helps someone; like I said
I looked for this tab
but couldn't find it
so finally resorted to trying to work it out for myself. It's my first
tab
so is probably totally wrong ;)
