Artist: Tremonti
Song: Dark Trip 
Tuning: 5 String Bass
Tabbed by: jjhand

This song is one of the easier bass parts on Cauterize but the bridge before 
the solo is a little tricky when adding slap bass techniques. Have fun and 
please rate or comment.

FYI, Wolfgang Van Halen plays a four string bass. Well, he's the one on the studio version. Obviously he does not currently play live.
