David Bowie - Time
from Aladdin Sane (1973)

Bowie´s been a part of me almost all my life. His death encouraged me to write down these bass tabs
which I'll upload from time to time.

One of my all time favourite Bowie's basslines! Trevor Bolder's great here.
I had this tab saved in my computer for a long time, didn't want to give it away, but here it is for you
to enjoy! It has some tricky parts. Give it a listen before learning it, it's 100% accuarate.
Tabbed by Leo Chiurco

Starts at around 0:12
