Okay, the existing bass tabs for The Middle suck so I thought I'd post this. I can't 
how anyone can tab this wrongly but many people have managed to! It's not difficult but 
good when played well. I've played it through a million times and then some and this is 100% correct. Enjoy!

lol aaargh, i was just going over my old tabs and i noticed that i ****ed the solo bit pretty bad. where i've marked the 10th fret of the D string i meant the 10th fret of the A string. that'll teach me to get all arsy about the other tabbers messing up. =P
