                  Medicine Jar – Wings
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Wings
Medicine Jar (1975)
(Jimmy McCulloch, Colin Allen)

From: "Venus and Mars"

This is my first bass tab. Comments and corrections are highly welcome!
I included many variations, but couldn’t do so for all the minor dead
notes and accentuations. Enjoy!
