blink-182 - Feeling This BASS TAB.

So all the other tabs are pretty much wrong, because if you listen to the bass track it 
sounds completely different so here's my attempt.

To listen to the Bass Track: /watch?v=35XV8UAdBMU

TONE: There's a lot of treble, and perhaps a little distortion.
There also seems to be a chorus effect on the bass but it's hard to tell.

TUNING: Drop E - This sounds odd, but it's the easiest way to play it like the recorded version.
Basically just tune your top 3 strings up by 2 semi-tones (or a step).
Tom's guitar is in a strange tuning on this song so it makes sense that the bass would 
be too.
Alternatively you can tune to drop D and put a capo on the second fret, if you do that; 
play this exact tab but 2 frets higher.

Mark doesn't play it this way live, but if you want to play it like it's played on the 
studio version, here you go.

E|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---------------------------------5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-| x2

Then there's a long pause until 0:55 where you play:

A|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----7-----7---7-----7---5---4-------4-----4---4-----------------|
B|-5-5---5-5---5---0-0---0---0---0-2-2---2-2---2-------7-------5---|

B|-5-5---5-5---5---0-0---0---0---0-2-2---2-2---2-------7-------5---|

Then at 1:12 back into:

A|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-----------------|
E|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---------------------------------5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-| x2

Then another pause until 1:45 where you play:

A|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-----------------|

B|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-2-2-2-2-------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------5---------------|

Small pause into variation of intro at 1:56:

A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----7---7---7-------7---5---4-------4---4---4---------12----------12----|
B|-5-5---5---5---5-0-0---0---0---0-2-2---2---2---2-10-10----10-10-10----10-|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

A|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----7---7---7-------7---5---4-------4---4---4-------------------|
B|-5-5---5---5---5-0-0---0---0---0-2-2---2---2---2-----5-------5---|
E|-------------------------------------------------5-5---5-5-5---5-|

Play this Variation of the intro 4 times and then end at 2:40 on this note:

A|---|
E|---|
B|---|
E|-0-|

And that's it.
It's not too hard once you get the hang of it and this is definitely the easiest way to 
play it.
The ending is a little hard to tab because the note definition isn't so great but apart 
from that this tab is 100% correct.

Enjoy.

Where do I start, the tuning you listed is not even drop E if the E string doesn't change tuning. Toms weird tuning is called standard or drop D with a capo on the 2nd fret. UG will let any tab be accepted these days I guess, this is atrocious.

If you actually read the tab that's exactly what it says say. Besides, this tuning is exactly the same as Drop D but a step higher, therefore it makes sense to call it Drop E? And also, have you honestly ever seen anybody use a 4 string with a capo?
If you actually want to improve the tab, suggest a name for the tuning rather than just slating the entire tab because the tuning is NAMED incorrectly. Its not exactly a common tuning anyway.
