My Friend (So Long) by dcTalk Bass Tab

Tabbed by TheBassMeister

SONG: My Friend (So Long)
ARTIST: dcTalk
ALBUM: Supernatural
TUNING: B E A D G (Standard)

Tuning Note: The original song was played on a 4-string bass guitar. So
while the notes are correct, most of the octaves are lower.  This tab
sounds better in my opinion because you get better low-end.


Intro - No bass, just acoustic guitar.


Verse 1

Wait until Michael sings "And so I genuinely felt obliged to call"
then start on "I know you never meant to hurt us man,"

END

There are only two parts that I'm not sure about.  The first is the bridge, where the
bass player throws in some nice fills.  I can't figure them out.  The second part is
the last G to F# to F progression in the Outro Chorus.  I think what is there is right,
but I'm not entirely sure.  It may be that you just play whole notes.  Any corrections
will be gladly accepted.

Alle Herrlichkeit zu Gott!

The "let ring" marks for Chorus 1&2 and Bridge are not formatted right. *sigh* I thought I fixed this during the approval period. It should be fixed real soon. ~TheBassMeister
