			     Bye Bye Love - The Cars

This is a fun song that doesn't take long to learn. I have the isolated bass track and
this is what I came up with. It can definitely be played differently and perhaps more
efficiently, but this is what I thought sounded best listening to the raw bass track. I
didn't bother putting in how many times you play each part and when. If you are learning this
song just give it a few listens to figure that part out. Also, there is very slight
variation in the chorus riff throughout...he mainly slides down and then hits the open A
like he does in the first chorus, just at different times. Email for corrections or if I 
missed something.
