A classic by Wild Cherry
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.

Why dont you play that E octave on the d string..like most of your tabs---seen this tabbed many times in publications but never like this. Gonna have to print and play it.

I'm not 100% sure what you are asking me but if it has to do with what position I play the E note (or any other notes) on the fret board it's just where I feel most comfortable playing that song. Naturally you should play it where you prefer. In some songs I feel the notes closest to the neck are too "tinny", for lack of a better term.

Thanks for posting this! Very clearly written and IMHO this is the best tabbed version of this song on this site for bass! Nicely done! :)
