              Mr. Pastorius - Bass Tab
    
         Transcribed and tabbed by Joe Britton

   Artist - Marcus Miller
   Album  - The Sun Don't Lie
   Track  - Mr. Pastorius

 This is quite a complicated tab as each bar is spread over two lines,
(one for each hand) so I have included some perfomance notes
 for most of the tab, which should explain it. Also there is a tab
 key. I hope this tabs not too confusing, just work through it with the
 c.d. and it should be clearer - Let me know what you think.

     Any questions, comments, etc. E-mail - Larrylaffer_uk@yahoo.co.uk
