CHORUS [2x]
2:28

“CLIMB” (w/drums and guitar also, this time)
2:50

*only play the second half of the CLIMB here and instead of playing those three 1’s on
E string at the end, just play 20 (twenty) on E and slide down to 8, where you begin the outtro.*

OUTTRO
3:00

E|-8-8--8-8-8-88--------------------------|

And there you have it.  One damn good bass part.

*A NOTE about the pick usage: yes, Emma is a BEAST -- she both slaps and uses a pick in
one and most likely fingers also, for instance during the pre-chorus (it sounds too rich
be picked but I could be wrong).  I have combined slapping/fingering/picking in songs 
and what I do is to keep a pick or two between my lips, then quickly grab it when
and just let it drop when I’m done with it.

This was a beech to tab, and it might not be absolutely perfect, but pretty darn close
the least.

Enjoy.
