Cousins Bass Tab - tabbed by Maisnon, january 2010

I'm a guitar player myself, but playing just the guitar part when I'm alone 
sounded pretty dull, since the verse is only supported by the bass. I 
decided to tab the bass part as well therefore. I think it turned out 
pretty nice, let me know if you got any feedback. There are bound to be 
some small errors, since this is also the first tab I made.

The melody is pretty straightforward and easy, but the difficulty is in 
the speed of the song and the tremolo picking.

Have fun!

Great tab but verse sounds wrong, besides he uses a capo on the second fret, here's how the verse should be, in my opinion
If you don't have a capo then just play it like this, or if you do have one then play the 2's as 0's
G |-------------------| x4
D |-2-6-2-8-2---------|
A |-------------2-7-9-|
E |-----------7-------|
There could be flaws but I think it's very accurate
Feel free to take this and put it as your verse if you want, I'm glad if it helps

Umm this looks like it makes more sense to me. URGOQFAN is just stressing out the hand with what he's doing.
