I'm not a big fan of Nickelback but here it is.

Tabbed by: BASSteve

Tuning: EADG ** 

**(This song is normally played on a 5-string bass and contains 
notes that are unable to be played on a 4-string bass. This transcription 
is for a 4-string bass so there are notes that will be an octave higher 
than what is actually in the song)

Time signature: 16/8

r = rest (listen for duration)
/ = slide (low to high)
\ = slide (high to low)
()= note inside parenthesis not plucked or hammered on
||= measure gets repeated (see number of times above measure, e.g. 4x)

*My tabs are meant to be read in conjunction with listening to the song.
In other words, there are no specific notations to account for note/rest duration. 
However, you will find that I've made an attempt to strategically space the 
notes and rests within their respective measures in order to represent the appropriate 
durations.

the notes can be played on a 4 string
you just need to tune down to drop D and play the 5th fret A string note shown , as an open d.

There's a low C as well which is being shown at the octave (3rd fret A string) so instead of playing drop D just to have to hit the high C anyway I decided to just keep standard tuning.

Trying to figure out playing these songs without tuning down. So this song is tabed in A, correct? Does Nickle back play it in D or C? Prob a dumb question but anyway...You seem to know bass well from seeing your other tabs

I want to post or [tab]
