Standard tuning

Comments: Regardless of who played this part, and I don´t think it´s Gene,
he had a relatively easy job. Sure, there are a few minor variations but all
in all this is a breeze, kind of the ultimate live song for the bass player.
Just pump open A´s for three fourths of the song and wave to the crowd. This
Song was previously tabbed by Greg Miranda and his tab missed the few 
variations that do occur and was, in my mind, kind of hard to read. No part 
of his original tab has been used in this one.


Key:
/    = slide up
\    = slide down
b    = bend (whole step)
b^   = bend (1/2 step)
b^^  = bend (1 1/2 steps)
pb   = pre-bend
r    = release-bend
t    = tap with righthand finger
h    = hammer-on
p    = pull-off
~    = Vibrato
*    = Natural Harmonic
#(#) = Trill
**   = Artificial Harmonic
x    = Dead notes (no pitch)
P.M. = Palm mute (- -> underneath indicates which notes)
(\)  = Dive w\bar
(/)  = Release w\bar
Tp   = Tap w\plectrum
