As with my other tabs, the higher frets are done like hexadecimal to keep the
spacing constant for a sense of rhythm. Play an "A" as the 10th fret, a "B"
as the 11th fret, etc. Many notes are slightly off-beat, so play them 
accordingly. I'm not 100% sure of the chords, but since this is a bass tab,
I'm OK with what I've written.

@ RafanoharanaRead his notes re use of hexadecimal.I think this is great idea as it keeps the tab in alignment.For non-hexadecimal readers:A=10B=11C=12D=13E=14F=15I suppose after that he could either go for G=17H=18I=19J=20
a=16b=17c=18d=19d=20
