LATE IN THE EVENING - Paul Simon
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Toki Barron
E-mail:

Tuning: Standard

A great tune written in F. Basic form is "root-octave-ninth-octave". You can get lazy 
with this and just go octave-octave-ninth-octave. Or go fancy and play root-root-
octave-ninth-octave.

Notice Tony Levin is playing with a 5 string bass, a little easier b/c you don't have to 
move your hand as much to hit the low F.

Anyhow, here are the basic riffs that are used over and over:

F:

G|----------|
D|---3-5-3--|
A|----------|
E|-1--------|

Bb:

G|----------|
D|---8-10-8-|
A|----------|
E|-6--------|

C:

G|-----------|
D|--10-12-10-|
A|-----------|
E|-8---------|

If you have a five string bass, the F part works a little better because you don't have 
to move your hands as much:
F (on a five string bass):
