Song:      Don't Dream It's Over
Artist:    Crowded House
Album:     Recurring Dream, The Very Best Of
Tabbed by: Jason Mangan
Date:      17-2-2001

Bass should be in standard tuning, low to high E, A, D, G.
If you want to play along with the record you will have to tune your bass 
sharp
(tighten strings).  I originally tabbed it with my bass tuned down but it is
easier this way as you get to play some open strings.
I've tabbed the whole song here but the verses and choruses are basically 
the same.
I also think that the song could have been played on a 5 string bass as a 
few of the
notes in the chorus seem to be an octave lower.  Four strings is enough for 
the
average man like me though!

I don't really like this tab, lotta wrong notes and plus to match the recording you have to tune down a half-step not up

I want to post or [tab]
