Roger Waters is typically an underated bass player. The fact, of course, is that he is a brilliant
bass player (among other talents). Although you won't often find complex bass lines as you
do in a typical Geddy Lee (Rush) or Steve Harris (Iron Maiden) piece, he is a master at
providing the "perfect bass line" which naturally compliments David Gilmour's guitar work.

Tabbed by: BASSteve

Tuning: DADG

Time signature: 4/4

r = rest (listen for duration)
h = hammer on
p = pull off
/ = slide (low to high)
\ = slide (high to low)
()= note inside parenthesis not plucked or hammered on
{}= note inside pointed parenthesis still ringing from previous measure

* 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.

wow 5stars? i dont think so.. the low note isn't an open E.. its a drop D.. or third fret B string plus could this be written any more confusing? you've got dotted lines..brackets.. repeat endings..

Actually,kaq6, if you looked at "Tuning" on the top as well as the string labels on the 1st measure you'd see that it is indeed a dropped D. As for the confusion ...... I don't know - I guess too much pot is frying your brain.
