*Guitar outro*

 

 

----****----|

---Legend---|

----****----|

R = Rest, I left them in to help keep time

/ & \ = Slide

p = Pull-off

h = Hammer-on

? = Couldn't figure it out accurately, best guess, improvise if you like

(#-#) = You may have noticed these at the ends of the lines, they're just a quick

for sequential notes, ignore them if they confuse you

 

 

----****----

--Comments--

----****----

This is my first tab so go easy... There are a lot of little variations on the bass in

song which is why such a seemingly simple song has such a long

 

tab. I think it's fairly accurate for the most part. I'm really not sure if this song

between the A string and the E string (D-string with the

 

tuning, however you wanna look at it) or if it's all on the E string like I have it

here. Try it both ways and see how you like it better.

 

For example the 'Main' bassline could be:

G------------------------------------------|

D------------------------------------------|

A-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-6-6-6-6-6-6-6------------|

D-------------------------------7- (8-7-1)-|

 

G----------------------------------------|

D----------------------------------------|

A-----------------8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--------|

D-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8----------------- (8-8)-|

 

Anyways, enjoy, this is a beautiful song and my favorite on the new album.
