                             LOSING MY RELIGION - R.E.M.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I know there are already a couple of bass tabs for this song that are rated with 5 stars
but, since the bass is barely audible in the final mix, I listened to the isolated bass
track and I found some differences (which I tried to tab down for personal use). I'm kinda
satisfied with the final result and I'd like to share it. I'll understand if the tab is
rejected for its unnecessariness, anyway, but please verify it listening to the isolated 
track because this is very accurate.
Lots of open strings, definitely not my style, but they suit Mills' sound.

This is the link for the bass track:

It's just the same as verse 1, but I can hear a slight difference (I may be wrong), so I tabbed it.

Thank you for your comment! Technically easy to play, but the timing differs quite much from the feeling of the whole song. I struggled remembering every single part (as I wanted to learn it note by note), so that's how I organized it for myself and here it is! Thanks again.
