Bass Tab
Queens of the Stone Age
Better Living Through Chemistry

Tune to C F Bb Eb

Note:
There are lots of subtlties to the playing of this song.
This tab isn't perfect, so mess with technique and do what sounds best.
Hammer-ons and pull-offs where I have slides often work nicely.

Damn great tab. I tabbed this a few years back but never uploaded it because I just couldn't work out most of it so I'm glad you've put this up!
