Tab Changed by Dave Vucko

================================================================================
This sounds completely correct to me. The bass line prettymuch follows the
guitar part. Tune to drop-D tuning(low to high: D A D G). I'm pretty sure this
is played with a pick. You should be able to figure out how to articulate all
of the notes from listening to the song. I call a lot of the parts bridges cuz
I don't know what else to call them.

Intro(bass enters at 0:07):
|--------------------------------|
|--------------------------------|
|-----------------(drums build up|
|8-8--------7-7---into main riff)|

Main Riff(the 7h8p7 is a sixteenth-note trill, not eighth notes like the rest):
|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------7-0-8-0-10-0-8-0-7h8p7----------10-0-8-0-7-------7-0-8-0------|(3x)
|0-0-0-0------------------------10---8-8--------------7-7---------10---|

|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------7-0-8-0-10-0-8-0-7h8p7--------------------------------------|(1x)
|0-0-0-0------------------------10---8-8---------7-7-----------------|

Verse:
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|5---5-5-----------15-15\13-13\12-12/13--------------------10-10/12-12\8-8\7-|
|--------x-x-0--------------------------8---8-8-x-x-10-----------------------|
( I'll try  she said as she walked away,  Try not to lose you. ...)  (2x)

|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------------------------7/-|
|12-12-12-12-12---0-0-0-0-0---0-0-5-7-8-8-8-8-8---10-10-10-10-10---10-10----|

----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
----------------------15-15\13-13\12-12/13--------------------10-10/12-12\8-|
-12---12-12-x-x-0--------------------------8---8-8-x-x-10-------------------|

----|
----|
8\7-|
----|

Bridge(or whatever you wanna call it)
|-------------------------------|
|-------------------------------|
|-------------------------------|(8x)
|0-0--------00000---------------|

Chorus(half-time feel, the 2h3 are 32nd notes, the 2h3p2 are sixteenth notes):
|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------2h3-2h3p2-------------------------------------|
|5-(5)-----------3---3-3------------5-3----------------------------------|
|--------0---0-2------------------------3-----3---3-3-8---8-8-8-8-8888--8|

|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
|5-(5)-----------3---3-3-3-3-3333--3----------------------------------|
|--------0---0-2--------------------3-(3)---3---3-3-3-5-5---3---------|

|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------2h3-2h3p2-----------------------------------------|
|5-(5)-----------3---3-3------------5-3--------------------------------------|
|--------0---0-2------------------------3-----3---3-3-8---8-8-8-8/2020202020-|
(those are 20s, not 2s and 0s)
--------|
--------|
--------|
202020\-|

|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
|5-(5)-----------3---3-3-3-3-3333--3----------------------------------|
|--------0---0-2--------------------3-(3)---3---3-3-3-5-5---3---------|

Bridge #2 Part 1: Harmony Riff(still half time feel):
|----------------------------------------------------------|
|323-------------032-----------------------------323-------|
|--------535-------------534---0---1-4-3-1-0---------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------|

Bridge #2: Part 2:(prettymuch the main riff again, end half time feel):
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|---------(while lead guitar plays main riff alone:------------------------|
|-----------bass follows backing guitar)-----------------------------------|
|0-----------------------------------------------------------------0-0-----|

|------------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------------|(then play
|----------------------------8-8---------7-7-----------------| main riff 4x)

Bridge #2: Part 3:(half time feel again):
|------|      |---------------------------|
|------|      |---------------------------|
|------|(8x)  |---------------------------|(2x)
|0-0-0-|      |0-12-11-0-10-9-8-0-7-0-6-5-|

Bridge #2: Part 4:(end half time feel)   (this riff is half time feel again)
|-------------------------------|      |-----------------------------------|
|-------------------------------|      |-----------------------------------|
|-------------------------------|(12x) |-----------------------------------|
|0-0--------00000---------------|      |0-6^---0-5^---0-5^---0-3-0-5---2---|

End of Bridge #2. Now, just go back to the chorus again. Let the last note of the
chorus ring for a little bit, then for the outro, just repeat the first bridge riff
8x through, and end on the first two notes of the riff. That's it, so enjoy.
