                           Between the Buried and Me
			Words by Tommy Giles Rogers, Jr.
		       Music by Dan Briggs, Paul Waggoner

This is played on a five string bass by Dan Briggs of BTBAM. If something
doesn't sound 100% right, it's most likely because I transposed the parts played on the 
string an octave up, to make the song playable on a four string bass.

I transposed the beginning part of the song from the tab book as:

------------6-5-5
-----3------7-6-6
---2---2--2------
-1-------1-------

That is exactly what Dan put on the tab book notation wise but just played on a different part of the fret-board.
