   Another perfect example of Paul McCartney's bass playing. Mrs. Vandebilt is
   another one of those songs tied for first for the best song on Band on the Run.
   It was released as a single in Continental Europe in January of 1974 backed with
   Bluebird (another great song from Band On The Run).

 *** Many times during the song, McCartney does a lot of slides that while tabbing I had to put the slashes
   to mark the slides in another line. McCartney also does a lot of eighth notes down at the 14th fret and
   while tabbing those are bunched together (14141414) It's always recommended to listen to the song and
   playing along to the tab. ***
