                           You Can Call Me Al
                              By Paul Simon

This song is probably the most famous songs Paul Simon has done, from a bassists point of view anyway,
because of the slap bass solo. I have seen two different ways of playing the bass solo,
I have only included one here, and if you look around the net, you will probably find a few more versions.

...all the right notes, but it's tabbed an octave too high.
