MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE	

Original music by	Sting
Performance by		The Police
Bass perfomance by 	Sting
===========================================================================

Listen to the song to find where Sting puts the tacets.
A masterpiece of playing for the song, not just to 
show off chops.

What really makes this bass line is the chorus section where
Sting plays a reggae riff.

Listen to the isolated bass track. This tab is almost the same. It only lacks sliding in the verse riff.
