The Joker - Steve Miller Band
Bass Tab

Here's the correct version in the correct key (F#),
with the correct timing.
Listen closely and compare it to this 'YouTube' Link:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nIHP9o6X6D8

Each increment = 1/32 note, so 2 inc's = 1/16 note,
4 inc's = 1/8 note, 8 inc's = 1/4 note, etc.

There are no sustained notes - each note is a 1/16 note.

Intro/Verse (2 repeating measures) -

4/4 @ 86 bpm

  1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +    1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +
G|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|
D|------------------------------1-|--------------------------------|
A|--------------1-2---2-------4---|4---4---------1-2-2-2-2-1-1-----|
E|2---2-------4-------------------|------------4---------------4-4-|


... I'll add the 'Chorus' later... Gotta go for now...

ISS5731: No, it really is F#... Good tab! Only one that's right I've seen so far...

The key is definitely F#. Listen to the song and play along and it's very obvious! This is the only correct tab for the bass part :)
