About this tab version
Looking for that low Key Bass buzz from the Song? Sounds near perfect on my Stringray 4, with 1 humbucker and no effect, but maybe a little Flanger and Phaser effect may help the rest of you. Its just a rewrite of the 5 string version for 4 string Standard Eb tuning. Was this info helpful? Yes No
