Song: "Operation: Mindcrime"
Artist: Queensryche
Album: Operation Mindcrime
Tabbed by: Randy Cuffe (cisco2000@comcast.net)

Date: 10-12-04

This is all by ear. But its about time somebody wrote a bass
tab for this song already!


Conventions used in this work:
B\A = slide down from fret B to fret A.
A/B = slide up from fret A to fret B.
(#) = let the previous note ring into the current measure,
      but do not play the note again.
