Thank you for this. It's from one of my favorite albums of the 80s and I never expected to see a bass transcription of it here!

Thanks; I've figured out how to play it since 1996;  sorry if I only got the courage to post it right now.  Check out my other tabs of the Bangles.  I think I had completed the Bangles discography in the UG archives.
