===============================================================================
Notes:

This song doesn't really have 'bass' in it, but it does have a bassline played
on a synthesizer, so here it is. From now on if You have Your bass with You,
You can officially Rickroll anyone anywhere. :)

If You have problems with this tab, write Me a mail what's wrong with it
instead of giving it a bad rating! It'd be better for everyone! Thx!

It could be easier to play in 1/2 step down tuning (and you wouldn't need a 5-string bass).

I know, but I'm too lazy to tune down my bass, and I play a 5-string. :) In standard tuning this is how You do it.

I have to work it out for a four string. Tricky little ditty.
