What's up everyone, my name's Chris LaBenne, and this is my bass tab for the
song "Classical Gas" by Mason Williams. I'm a 14 year old beginner, and this is my
first tab, but I'm pretty sure it's correct. I'm not sure that a bass is really used
in the song, but it sounds great when you play it. Just don't turn up the distortion
on the bass and it'll sound fine.

(On the last note of the outro, you can even have the option of placing your finger on
fret 14 of the D-string and strumming the A and D strings together to make it sound
like a very high fifth.)

So, that's what I've got. I think it's pretty good considering I just began bass guitar
about a week ago. If there's any problems with it, E-mail me at HeyNaBenne8@aol.com.
