Standard tuning

Comments: This bassline, like all of Ace´s songs after his
1978 solo album, was played by Ace himself. It shows too,
the riffs are kind of funky and are nowhere near what Gene
would have played.

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
x    = Dead notes (no pitch)
P.M. = Palm mute (- -> underneath indicates which notes)
Tp   = Tap w\plectrum
