Title: Mind Eraser
Artist: The Black Keys
Album: El Camino
Tabber: Brian Kircher
Email: b.t.kircher@gmail.com
Electric Bass

Unfortunately, the software that I use for tablature won’t export in the proper format. 
I have done the best I can to make the timing known.

If you would like the PDF format of the sheet music (music notation and tablature), or 
the Midi file – feel free to email me.


Tempo = 104

The song is picked on the album (if you’re looking for the same tone), but I prefer the 
ol’ 1-2 finger approach.
