AC/DC-Back in Black
Back in Black (1980)

I've worked hard on this tab, and I know for a fact it is far more accurate than any of
tabs for this song in archive.

Update: August 11/08: OPEN YOUR EARS. It DOES NOT go from E to D to A. It is E,D,Db.
can tell you that. Listen, listen, and listen some more. This tab is 100%. I worked on it
6 months (looking at live footage, listening to studio version.)

Unlike most on this site, I tab the ACTUAL BASSLINES. I DON'T transcribe what the guitar
in a bass tab. Trust me on this. Cliff Williams COULD NOT HAVE TABBED IT ANY MORE
HIMSELF. Listen to the song twenty, thirty, forty, hell, fifty times in a row, then tell 
this is wrong. LEARN TO USE YOUR EARS PEOPLE.

You're retarded if you think that it goes E, D, A. OPEN YOUR EARS MAN.
It's not THAT HARD to tell the difference in tone, PLEASE, OPEN YOUR EARS. Listen to the actual BASS. Don't assume that it clones what the guitar plays. My tabs are 99.999999 percent accurate, and I'm not just blowing smoke out of my ass. Double, Triple, Quadruple check. Listen to the actual bassline. You'll thank me.
