Alabama Song (Whisky Bar) - The Doors

Tabbed By: born21239

The bass on this song is played by Ray Manzarek on a Fender
Rhodes Piano Bass, not a bass guitar. Play it with your
fingers and listen to the recording to pick up on the exact
timbre of the notes. You can transpose the strings however
you like, as the bassline is not originally written for the
bass guitar. This is just the way I prefer to play it and
think sounds best. This is the whole song from beginning to
end, at least 95% accurate, but the recording is 4-track and
the bass was not recorded that well so some of the notes were
not discernable, and are more the product of educated guesses.
