Song: Getting In Tune
Artist: The Who
Album: Who's next

OK, here's the bass tab for Getting In Tune (great song, isn't it?).
I didn't put any time signature because I find it quite boring to do, 
but I did take the time to divide it in measures (the song is in 4/4, 
by the way). 

I only put the simplified names of the chords because I didn't 
really feel like finding out the exact chord construction details; 
I'm a bassist, for Christ's sake!!!  

Anyway, I read on BPmag that this song was used as a Berklee bass 
class lesson, so enjoy.

In this part, some of the instrumens fade, and Entwistle does some new 
variations. From now on, they play everything 1 tone (2 frets) higher, 
so watch out.

>From this point on, the song starts repeating (1 tone higher, always). 
Although there are some little variations, you've already got enough to 
play the whole song. 

Also, I'm almost sure that he does a three-notes piece of scale in that 
part where the chord progression goes F, F, G#, A# but I just couldn't 
figure it out. If you have it, or any correction, please send it to me 
or to the site.
