Album: "We Like It Here" Live DVD (2014)

This is the version that was posted officially on YouTube.

Bass (E A D G) - 'Michael League - Clean, Finger'

- This tab does not use the exact tuning as Michael. If anyone knows what tuning is actually 
used I'd be happy to make a version with the correct tuning. 
- Believe it or not, almost this entire piece is in 4/4. The only section with time signature
changes is the interlude (4:42). It's mainly the drummer playing around with the beats that 
he accents that gives the illusion of odd time.
- All corrections/suggestions are welcome and greatly appreciated.

keeping the beat in your head so that you come in at the right time.

- I believe that this is being played here. You can see Michael playing something during the solo.
He seems to do it in some performances and not in others.
