BASS TAB
Aerosmith - S.O.S. (Too Bad)
(S. Tyler)
From the album Get Your Wings, 1974
Bassist:  Tom Hamilton

Tabbed by:  Austin Lewis (Nitsua111@aol.com)

To play this correctly, you need to tune your bass down one half step
(Gb, Db, Ab, Eb).


Part 1
Intro:
Gb|--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------|
Db|-7-5----------|--------------|-7-5----------|--------------|
Ab|-----7---3-4--|-5------------|-----7---5-3--|--------------|

Gb|--------------|--------------|--------------|--------------|
Db|-7-5----------|--------------|-7-5----------|--------------|
Ab|-----7---3-4--|-5------------|-----7---5-3--|--------------|
Eb|-------5------|--------------|-------5------|-5-3----------|

Gb|----------------| You should be holding the note on the 3rd fret
Db|----------------| from the previous measure, and then all you do here
Ab|----------------| is a quick hammer on to the 4th fret, holding that
Eb|-h4-------------| until you play what's below.
