Song: Aftermath
Artist: REM
Album: Around The Sun
Tabbed By: MrOoze (Mrooze@yahoo.com)

Fun song. My favourite on the album, actually.
I'm 99% sure this is 100% correct, but comments and corrections are welcome.
The timing can be a little tricky, but tap your foot along to the 1+2+3+4+, 
and you'll get it.
Every single variation is included.
Mail me if you have any REM Bass Tab requests. Comments and Corrections welcome.

Tuning is Standard
/ = Slide up
\ = Slide down
h = Hammer
