“Firefly” by Saves The Day for the bass guitar.

Tabbed by Greg Mitchell(If anybody wants any other bass tabs for Saves the Day songs my
is xxvrufiovxx.  I can’t tab anything after the album Stay What You Are because I don’t
the songs.)

I’ve been playing this song for years and I think it’s one of the greatest songs ever,
also has some great bass.  Although some people would say Saves The Day aren’t the most
gifted band in the world, their bass player at the time was great in my opinion.  I’ve 
other tabs for this song but none of them do it any justice.  Hopefully this one works
for you guys.

This tab is not 100% correct but it definitely gives you way more of the fills then the
tab on the site.
