"If I Like It, I Do It" - Jamiroquai Bass Tab

Transcribed by Jimmy C       email= jimmy_c15@hotmail.com

In this great song Stu uses heaps of fifths and octaves, and when listening it sounds complex but it's really quite simple once you "get in the groove". As you all know Mr Zender improvises HEAPS so i've transcribed the basic line and left it up to you to put in the fills!
There is one note that i'm not sure if it is played on a B string(I don't have a 5 string myself.... hopefully i will soon!)so I have bracketed this and left it up to you to decide whether I am right or not.
Basic tab conventions
h= hammer on  p= pull off
*= dead note
