About this tab version
Live version from Stage album. Was this info helpful? Yes No
David Bowie - Blackout (Live)
from Stage (1978)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qSEahhbluNA

Bass line from the live version of the song. I couldn't figure out the original "Heroes" version,
so here it is. I think this version is more interesting to play than the original.
I took a long while to figure this out, enjoy!
