			     PROTOTYPE - OUTKAST
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed By : JOEL B.
Tuning: Drop D

I think this is one of the greatest Bass lines ever.
It takes hours to figure this out because there were so manny differences.
Much fun and don't forget to rate ;)

Intro: No Bass

               Chorus:
Bass comes in at 0:49              + +  <-- These are natural harmonics

Sweet tab man but what do the asterisks signify?

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong. I'm not trying to be a dick it's just that from the 4th note in the tab you're already wrong, and in countless other places throughout the entirety of it. Try to train your ear a little better to pick up on the slight differences in pitch because you're only off by a little bit each time, but it's so frequent that it makes me frustrated that I'm not learning the song correctly at all.
