"Answers"
by Goldfinger
off their self-titled album

The Main riff is used for the intro, the verse, and all but the last chorus.
The pre-chorus is quite simple, then it goes to chorus (i.e. Main riff again).
After the first chorus there is a tiny bass solo, then the bass doesn't get 
cool again until the horn solo and then the pre-chorus and bridge chorus.

All in all quite a simple song, played with a pick and a syncopated rhythm.  
Simon Williams plays his bass with a deeper, fuller sound, if you'd like to 
emulate with tone controls.

Main riff:

G: ----------------------------------------------
D: ----------------------------------------------
A: --5-5-----5--------------5-5-----5--------
E: --------------5-5-----5--------------3-3--

G: ----------------------------------------------
D: ----------------------------------------------
A: ------5-5-----5-------------5-5-----5------
E: ---3-------------5-5-----5-------------6-6--

Pre-chorus:

G: ----------------------------------------------
D: --------------------------------5----7-------
A: ---3---5-------------3----5-----------------
E: ------------3----5---------------------------

Miniature bass solo after 1st chorus:

G: ----------------------------------------------
D: ----------------------------------------------
A: --0--8--10-10-10-10-10--8--7-----------
E: -------------------------------------9--------

Horn solo:

G: ----------------------------------------------
D: ----------------------------------------------
A: --5-5---5--7--8-----5-5----5--7--8-------
E: ----------------------------------------------

G: ----------------------------------------------
D: ----------------------------------------------
A: -----------------------------------4----------
E: --3--3---3--5--6---5-5--5--7--------------

Repeats twice, then decorates thus:

G: --------------------0-----------------------0----
D: -0-0-0-0---2--3------3--0-0-0-0--2-3-----3-
A: --------------------------------------------------
E: --------------------------------------------------

G: ----------------------------------------------
D: ----------------------------------------(0)--
A: ------------0-1-3-1---0-0-0-0---2-4-5--4-
E: --3-3-3-3-----------------------------------

Plays the decorated version twice also, then goes to pre-chorus.
You may find it easier to play 0 on the D string instead of 5 on
the A string in the last decoration.

Ending chorus:

G: ---------------2------------------------------
D: --2--4------------5--4--2--4---------------
A: ---------2------------------------------------
E: ----------------------------------------------

G: ---------------2------------5--4-------------
D: --2--4-------------5--4---------------------
A: ---------2------------------------------------
E: ----------------------------------------------

Plays the entire riff twice, then slides down to end on:

G: ----------------------------------------------
D: --2-~~~~----------------------------------
A: ----------------------------------------------
E: ----------------------------------------------
     (Played with vibrato)

If you wonder what letter tunings I was using when I tabbed this (i.e. L, G, 
A, B) or understand that I'm the coolest bassist you'll ever know, you can
