                 Breakdown - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, 1976 - Bass

Tabbed by: Stingerdawg

Tuning: standard, bass E A D G 

My first tab submission. This is a simple version of the song and sounds very close to the actual recording.
There are a couple of filler notes missing especially at the beginning 
but I play this tab with friends and it gets me by...enjoy!

On note 3. the A is more or less played as a 1-count and the G is played as 2-counts. If you play it with the song you'll get the timing down. This is the kind of song I like to play when I'm not in an energetic mood...you can just sit back, close your eyes and the guitar almost plays itself :-D
