                             Song 2 - Blur
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Zaqq
E-mail: zaqqthe@gmail.com

Tuning: standard (EADG)

Tempo: 130 BPM

Notes: 

1. I used the original bass track to transcribe this line.
You can find it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zhx_GWNRgnk
Also I watched the video with Blur's bass player,
where he describes how to play this song on bass (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18TiG3J-6vg).

2. IMPORTANT! This song features 2 bass lines, recorded using overdubbing.
The second one starts to play in the second part of the second chorus,
it plays that notes with slides.
In this tab I combined both tracks into one.

~ - hold this note
/ - slide up
\ - slide down

No it's not. You notated it a semitone higher, which is incorrect.
