Bass Tab for Use The Man

Notes: Play the waiting game with this song. Take all the slides, all the 
       bends nice and slow. There's no need to rush them, rob them whatever 
       amount of sustain (amount of time you hold the note) you can get. 
       The main key is to follow along with the verses and to listen to the 
       words. If you can't hear the bass line, turn your stereo up really 
       loud, cut out the treble and listen closely.

New Symbols: ~ - Symbol for a bend, in this case, a slow deep bend
             \ - Symbol for a slide (always tough to write those out)
