Standard tuning

Comments: The bass maimly mirrors the guitar riffs here with a 
few slight variations. Most of this tune seems to shift between
straight and odd time but I'm not sure. Sometimes I have trouble
finding the "1". But that's Soundgarden for you. Play this with 
a pick for that growling and biting sound. The bends are all
just shy of a half-step. I haven´t bothered writing out the
exact number of times that Rhy. Fig 2 is played during the
verse. Just play it a lot. You´ll feel when things head to the 
next riff.

Key:
/    = slide up
\    = slide down
b    = bend (whole step)
b^   = bend (1/2 step)
b^^  = bend (1 1/2 steps)
pb   = pre-bend
r    = release-bend
t    = tap with righthand finger
h    = hammer-on
p    = pull-off
~    = Vibrato
*    = Natural Harmonic
#(#) = Trill
x    = Dead notes (no pitch)
P.M. = Palm mute (- -> underneath indicates which notes)
Tp   = Tap w\plectrum

FAIL. Why even bother to make a tab and be a lazy **** about it and not make a distinction between the verse, chorus, and bridge, etc.
