Just so everyone knows, i take absolutely NO credit for this tab. I cant find the name 
the original guy who did this, but here you go.

One of the best bass performances ever, by one the best bassists ever. Ross Valory. I 
him do this song live on this year’s tour, and he was on fire. Very hard to do, but very 
sounding when it’s done right.
