Soundgarden - "My Wave"
From the album 'Superunknown'
Standard Bass tuning
tabbed by jjhand

I ran across the bass track Ben shepherd played that was available from a 
Rock Band video game track. Note that all verse riffs are in 5/4 time, the 
wah parts are in 6/4, and that the chorus and ending are in 4/4 time. Please 
rate or comment.
