Band: The Killers
Song: Joy Ride
Bassist: Mark Stoermer

Another funky Killers bassline by Mark Stoermer. I hate to write fret numbers with no
in between them but due to the nature of the rhythm in this one it's unavoidable. Please
however, every time you see '10' it signifies the tenth fret, not the first and an open 
and '12' signifies the twelfth. Also, because of the width of the lines, I've had
split some of them which is why some sections are so long.

Enjoy, please leave a comment if you find any errors and don't forget to rate!
