PUNISHMENT DUE - Megadeth

Ok, so I'm really a guitar player, but I can slap a little bass as well.
Really, I made this tab for my bass player because the other tabs on here
were almost completely inaccurate and didn't have the correct note spacing.
I figured out this tab by watching a YouTube video of David Ellefson playing
this song along with his iPod because I couldn't really hear the bass on the
original recording well enough to figure it out.  Check out the video and
you will discover the method behind the madness.

Honestly shouldn't it be the bass player's job to learn it? Other than that oddity it's perfect.
