Drown Me Slowly - Audioslave

Bass by Tim Commeford


I play this song in dropped-D. The chorus/guitar solo riff is in 15/8, I only did this
for easier reading.

In this part I tabbed two areas on which you could play this part, those notes aren't 
Me, for example, I like to play it starting at the 12th fret.

OK granted you can play it using this version, but the tuning for this song is actually
D
A
E
B
Four string bass with the 5th string added and 1st taken away, but good alternative never the less. Tim commerford uses this tuning INSTEAD of standard these days, i've got 2 articles from both audioslave releases saying this.

I'm pretty sure he plays power chords in the verse, so dropped D is unnecessary. Like that:

standard tuning (EADG)
