Artist - JOY DIVISION
Album - Permanent: Joy Division 1995
Song Title - Atmosphere
Bassist - Peter Hook

This is one of my favorite Joy Division songs, and although it's not hard
to figure out, I thought it deserves to be on the OLGA, just in case. This
line should be played with a rather melodic, free style, so be sure to throw
a couple of tasty fills for good measure.

* The notes in brackets are the low synth notes, related to but not the same
  as the chord changes
** These notes should be played very softly (piano)

For the other verses you use the same pattern, with some variation in the
fills. To get a similar tone to Pete's, use a pick and some chorus. Pay very
much attention to the dynamics of the bass playing, some of the notes in the
tab should barely even be played, while others are heavily accented. This
song is very easy to play but it takes considerable touch and finesse to make
it sound like the original (hey, it's Pete Hook!! =P)...
