Tabbed By : Simoun Monzon (Philippines)

This is what actually mike plays this song, there's a ,of bass tabs for this but all of them is wrong... 
BTW I used the bass track for this so It's 90-100% right ;)
It's a little hard for  beginners but if you can do octaves in bass then your good to Go! 

Bass starts at 00:37 (think I'm cracking up)

Great tab! I was going to post one myself, but this one is very except for a few variations or corrections that I would make. This is the tab that people should be looking at for basket case.

The variation in the chorus sounds better like this to me:

Gb|----------|
Db|-6h7-6----|
Ab|-------7--|
Eb|----------|
