************************************************************************************

Over the solo guitar, the bass guitar  is playing the same riff that appears
in Tubular Bells, the part of "The Bell", and it's something like this:

G+-----------------2--|--2--0--------------------|
D+-----------0--2-----|--------2--0--4--5--------|  Repeating it the whole time.
A+--0--0--0-----------|--------------------3--2--|
E+--------------------|--------------------------|

************************************************************************************

Tips:

(*) Use a Wah-Wah pedal with the just quantity of distorted effect.
(**) Here you can reemplace the note by a fast and long Slide up ----->  3/(20)

Great song, I would reccomend starting off on clean guitar then moving onto more
when it comes quite high around 22, it pwnz when you play along with the actual song, 
fun.
