I've worked hard on this tab, and I know for a fact it is far more accurate than any of
tabs for this song in archive.

Update: August 11/08: OPEN YOUR EARS. It DOES NOT go from E to D to A. It is E,D,Db.
can tell you that. Listen, listen, and listen some more. This tab is 100%. I worked on it
6 months (looking at live footage, listening to studio version.)

Unlike most on this site, I tab the ACTUAL BASSLINES. I DON'T transcribe what the guitar
in a bass tab. Trust me on this. Cliff Williams COULD NOT HAVE TABBED IT ANY MORE
HIMSELF. Listen to the song twenty, thirty, forty, hell, fifty times in a row, then tell 
this is wrong. LEARN TO USE YOUR EARS PEOPLE.
