LISTEN TO THE MUSIC Bass Tab by The Doobie Brothers

Tabbed by: BASSteve
Tuning: EADG
Time signature: 4/4

*My tabs are meant to be read in conjunction with listening to the song.
In other words, there are no specific notations to account for note/rest duration.
However, you will find that I’ve made an attempt to strategically space the notes
and rests within their respective measures in order to represent the appropriate durations.
