I saw this song requested and always liked the
bassline so I figured i'd post it!

It's in standard tuning (EADG). Another great bassline 
by John Paul Jones. It's pretty straightforward except
that there ALOT of little articulations (especially in
the slides) that are great practice to learn and really
add alot to the song. Most of what you can learn from 
someone else's basslines comes from learning all the
little "licks" and "articulations" that the great ones
are masters of. Therefore, i've tried to notate as best
I can alot of the little things he does. Good Luck!
