About this tab version
It is a live version,I'm old and my ears are not that good. Was this info helpful? Yes No
This is an Abner Jay cover and its for the live version from Brussels 


[Intro]  my guess its that Parks palys a half step down but I'll tab this one standard.
 main bass line that starts at 0;36 and it will be diversified with different subtle fills(which my ears have
hard times fishing them out).I'll try to add each one,first one comes in at 00:39
