About this tab version
Contains time notations to help with the rhythm. Needs to be played with your own feeling and dynamics. The notes aren't too hard but you really need to lock into the groove. It's also worth noting that everything except the Intro/Chorus is actually synth.

Is the tuning correct? When playing along with the track my bass sounds flat but I know it's perfectly tuned. So I wondered if the tuning wasn't actually standard.

The tuning on the recording is slighty off. You'll have to try to correct it by ear to make it sound true to the recording.
