It Will Rain - Bruno Mars

Tabbed by: Radagast27 [http://www.youtube.com/user/Radagast27] March 3, 2013
E-mail: christopher.willett@gmail.com

Tuning: standard

Note: This song does not really have a traditional bass part, but this is what 
I play when I cover this song. It fits nicely. I tend to play more notes and 
connecting bits than transcribed here, but this is the core of what I play.

Video of this bass cover:

(I posted this video long before I made this tab and I was just improvising. 
Due to several requests for tabs in the comments, I decided to finally do it. 
This tab is somewhat based on how I played it originally, minus the various 
flubs I made)

Update: I just did a video of this song specifically using this tab.
