About this tab version
Written for 4-string bass. Taken from the 'Official Lyric Video'. Was this info helpful? Yes No
I believe Les uses a 5-string bass with a high 'B'-string.
This tab is for a 4-string bass. To make it easier to play,
I tuned down to Drop D. Enjoy.


[Intro]
You can play this with your fingers like Les, but you can hear
that he plucks the strings very hard. I like to make it easier
for myself, thus I slap this part.

[Verse]
I pop the strings with thumb & middle finger.

[Chorus]
This part may look difficult, but it is actually easy once you figured out
the pattern.

[Outro]
This part is entirely hammer-on, expect for the very last part, which is simply the chorus again.
The 17/16-notes are played with the right hand, like in Jerry Was A Race Car Driver.
The second part might be a bit confusing regarding which hand to use.
Therefore, they are signified by (r = right hand) and (l = left hand) for with which
hand to play the notes.
