Tablature for Electric Bass

Song: You're My Best Friend
Author: Queen (written by John Deacon)
Tuning: Standard
Tab Author: Ben Archer

I think this is pretty close to the original track, but due to the fact that the bass is 
low in the mix it would be quite hard to get everything perfect.


Bass enters at ~0:09
