A classic by Paul Simon.

Tabbed by: BASSteve

Tuning: EADG

Time signature: 4/4 (except where noted)

r = rest (listen for duration)
/ = slide (low to high)
\ = slide (high to low)


*My tabs are meant to be read in conjunction with listening to the song.
In other words, there are no specific notations to account for note/rest duration. 
However, you will find that I’ve made an attempt to strategically space the notes and 
rests within their respective measures in order to represent the appropriate durations.

lots of wrong notes, lots of wrong notes, and this thing is making me enter 15 words or more. Oh, still not enough words. There, that should do it!

Could you please elaborate and show me the right notes ? Somehow, when I play this song with my band, the screaming fans think they are the right notes.

No one notices... because your a bass player ;)

Seriously though, for example, the walk up/down intro riff is:
------------------------|-------------------------|
--------------2---------|--------------2----------|
--0--0--2--4-------2--4-|--0--0--2--4-----0-------|
------------------------|--------------------4--3-|

--------------------------|------------------------|
--------------------------|------------------------|
--------------------------|-7--7--7--7--9--9-------|
-2--2--2--2-/-7--7--7--7-9|-------------------7--7-|

And beginning of the chorus is:
----------------------|---------------------------|
----------4------4--4-|-------------2--2--2-0-----|
--0---4---------------|-2--2--2--2------------4-2-|
----------------------|---------------------------|

---------------------------|------------------------|
-------------0--0--0-------|-------------2--2--2--2-|
-0--0--0--0----------4-3-2-|-2--2--2--2-------------|
---------------------------|------------------------|

Just listen to the song, man. Then the musician fans of yours will be screaming too!
