Title: Nothing Compares 2 U
Author: Sinead O'Connor         
Note:   Original studio version
Tuning: standard


CAUTION: The song is a "regular" 4/4 ballad, a mean example of
"underwear-ripper-song", as I call this kind of works, so the
bass can be played straight or with some additional note. 

In this TAB I'll show you the way I play it, and at the bottom I'll show
a nice variation you can make to give it more "life", just not to
fall asleep while you play it.

Enjoy and keep it simple :)

Bass starts with drums at 00:57,with the MAIN RIFF:
G|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|-3-33--3-------------------------|--7---7-7------------------------|
A|----------3-33--3-4-5-55--5------|---------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|

FIRST CHORUS:
(sings "'cause nothing compares...nothing compares...to you)
G|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|-5----3----5----3----------------|---------------------------------|
A|--------------------3------------|---------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|

Then (at 01:30) it goes with the MAIN RIFF again:
G|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|-3-33--3-------------------------|--3-----3------------------------|
A|----------3-33-3-4-5-55--5-------|-----3---------------------------|
E|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
                                
Until 02:29,where the MAIN RIFF ends with 
G|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------|--7---7-7------------------------|
A|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|

And leads to the SECOND CHORUS (02:33),
which will be used until the end of the song:
(sings "'cause nothing compares...nothing compares...to you)

G|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|--5----3-------------------------|---------------------------------|
A|-----------5----3----------------|---------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|

From 02:49 until the end the bass plays the MAIN RIFF and the SECOND
CHORUS. That's it.

                                  END


A LITTLE VARIATION/ADDITION you can add to spread some life to
your groove:

                               MAIN RIFF
G|---------------------------------|---------------------------------|
D|--3---33-------------------------|---------------------------------|
A|----3------3---33-4--5--55-------|---------------------------------|
E|-------------3--------5----------|---------------------------------|
