Maybe you've been listening to this song and thought, "Man, I wanna play this
song, but I don't have a guitar." Not to fret, my fine friend, because you can
play this with a bass guitar like a BOSS.

Disclaimer: Not the easiest to play. This is basically sliding into 
a bunch of 10th-interval double-stops, while adding a little flair between the

Tuning: Standard (E A D G)


How to play: You may have noticed that there are three kinds of double-stops

Minor			Major			Dominant

G|---12-----|		G|---11-----|		G|---9------|
D|----------|		D|----------|		D|----------|
A|----------|		A|----------|		A|---9------|
E|---12-----|		E|---10-----|		E|----------|

For the Minor double-stops, use your middle finger to fret the low note,
then fret the top one with your ring finger.

As for the Major ones, use your first finger for the low note and your ring
finger for the high note. I use the ring finger instead of the middle finger
because it's quite a bit of a stretch to place it right, especially if you're
going from "chord to chord."

The Dominant stop is up to you. I typically use my middle and ring finger, but
use whichever is most comfortable.

This part:


What usually happens here is that, due to only having four strings to work with
pulling off the pull-off becomes exceedingly difficult because at the time, your
fingers are too far away to get the desired sound. What I personally do (not saying
it's right, just saying) is move my palm to the left so that the BOTTOM of my first
finger is over the E on the G string (9th fret). That way, I can perform the pull-off
using the ring finger and bottom of the first finger.
