x 8

On 8th repeat, hold the last note, then pulse it eight times


\ = slide down

All repeats refer to the sections above them.
For the chorus's, the notes a sixteenth before the downward slide are not heard so much 
they are felt; they help with the timing/quickness of the slide.
As for the riff sections, the space in the second measure after the 3rd beat is 
quiet, and though it does sound like there is something being played, it acts more like ghost 
and a build up to the first beat of the next measure.

I saw that there were no tabs done for Cavalettas, so I did this because that is a travesty.

In the last measure of the riff sections, for some reason I guess I forgot to put the 2 on the E string on the first beat before the 5 on the A as it should be:

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
G -------------------------------|
D -------------------------------|
A ----------------5--------------|
E 2------------------------------|

I figured that as bass tabs go, this would probably be harder than most. The sliding ability and timing needed for the chorus and the riff section makes it pretty hard. But then again I don't really know what an advanced bass tab is, since I don't even really play the bass, I'm a drummer.
