This is one of my favorite songs ever! The only sad part is that the bass doesn't play
the famous line. No one should have problems, 'cause this is 100% right. (I listen to
it about 15 times a day!)

  intro       [Pick up]

 I've condensed the tab for space, but most of it is constant 8th notes.
   This is what bass plays at famous guitar line.
