      Fast As You - Dwight Yoakam
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Tabbed by: Country Bass
 E-mail: aaron.white8@education.nsw.gov.au

 Great song by one of country's greatest. The bass simply plays what the guitar plays, 
the main riff is the same on guitar.

 For any beginner bassists looking at this tab it takes a while before your fingers get 
used to the stretching from 3 to 6.

Instead of 6 - 3 - 5 - 3 shouldn't that be 6 - 2 - 4 - 2?

The Key is A major
E E Ab A D B Db B
5 5 7 1 4 2 3 2 Nashville Numbers
D is not in the Key of E major, it (D) is in the key of E minor but the 7 (Ab) would also have to flatten to (G). So therefore this song can not be in the Key of EM or Em.
