This is a cover of the a-ha song 'Take On Me'. It is quite similar to the original version but with a more 
prominent bass and some nice extra fills. All thanks to Ninja Sex Party and Tupper Ware Remix Party for making
the kick-ass cover album 'Under The Covers'

Credit to Zucco260 for creating the original Take On Me bass tab that this is based off of. There are small
differences between the original song and this cover version so I thought I would remake the tab for this.

Awesome, I love the bass in Under the Covers and TWRP's new album. We Close Our Eyes is my favourite, if you transcribed that one that'd be amazing <3

We Close Our Eyes is beautiful, I've been thinking of transcribing it for a while but never got around to it. I may need to give it a go.
