D A D G B E
Artist: Soundgarden
Title: Spoonman
Tabbed by: John Krauss 
Tuning: (Drop D) -- D, A, D, G

  ||  I've listened to the isolated bass track of this song     ||
  ||  while I was making this tab, so I would say that it is    ||
  ||  currently more accurate than the other bass tabs on here  || 
  ||  from what I've seen, as there are a few notes played that ||
  ||  are very faint while the other instruments are playing.   ||

How do you put the D string into G mid song, unless it's a typo.

My apologies, definitely a typo. Not even sure how that happened... But yes, it's supposed to be D,A,D,G all the way through. Thanks for noticing.

Great tab, from what I can tell,
However, you should make it a little less vague than "1.2" etc
Because it took me a couple minutes to even figure out what that meant,
Overall spending 5 minutes trying to piece the song structure together
Leaving an indication of the time the riff is first used or some other indicator of how this tab functions, would eliminate this, and make this tab both accurate AND incredibly easy to read,
