Listen to the song for arrangement plus embellishments (i.e. the verse and 
chorus riffs
are played with slight variations each time around).  I have endeavoured to 
indicate
the on-beat in some of the horn unison section, but I'm pretty sure these 
aren't quite
correct. I'm not very good at counting to four!
Enjoy!
(and if loads of covers bands start playing this around North London - you 
owe me a pint!)

i'm pretty sure you didnt get the verse, but what you have sounds good. if you listen it sounds like...

--------------------------------------
-----9--------6--------5---4--4-2-1---
---6---9----2---6----2---5----------4-
-7--------4--------3------------------

please note i dont really play bass, i just picked up my bro's and thumbed this out. let me know if it helps

nope, gotta say you're wrong.. hes tabbed it well.

although there is no bass part in the intro, and i wouldnt mind a bit more spacing in the "horn break" section to help with the rhythm. im giving 5***** though ;) great tab!
