i just wanted to point out that it says capo 2 and you should never have to capo a bass in the first place

Also confused by the capo instruction and the chord indications, but the bass tab is solid.

Late seeing these comments. Funny. I never thought of that. The CAPO 2nd was for the guitar chords, meant as if a guitar player and bass player were playing off the same sheet. The bass tab is written to be played, as it should be, without a capo.
