Title: The Saddest Song
Artist: Streetlight Manifesto
Album: Everything Goes Numb
tabbed by Hergiswi

I'm not promising 100% accuracy since this is a hectic bassline, but hopefully it 
a good basis for learning the real thing.

Also, it's worth nothing that any note repetitions are not necessarily accurate. The 
has sort of a bouncy feel to it, so

occasionally double some notes, do some small slides and maybe throw in a few octaves 
whatnot and you should be alright. Just feel it.

I repeated stuff just for clarification. Here's the order:

Intro
Main riff
Verse 1
Pre-chorus
Altered main riff
Chorus
Main riff
Verse 2
Pre-chorus
Bridge
Distorted main riff
Chorus
Outro

A lot of these are pretty repetitive, and the chorus/outro are actually the same riff, 
it shouldn't be too hard to figure out.
