LISTEN TO THE MUSIC Bass Tab by The Doobie Brothers


Tabbed by: BASSteve

Tuning: EADG

Time signature: 4/4

r = rest (listen for duration)
/ = slide (low to high)
^ = bend (listen for pitch and release charateristics)
()= note inside parenthesis not plucked or hammered on
{}= note inside pointed parenthesis still ringing from previous measure

*My tabs are meant to be read in conjunction with listening to the song.
In other words, there are no specific notations to account for note/rest duration.
However, you will find that I’ve made an attempt to strategically space the notes 
and rests within their respective measures in order to represent the appropriate durations.
