Bush — History bass tabs

Song:  History
Artist: Bush
Album: Razorblade Suitcase
Tabbed by: A. J. Farmer
Tuning: EADG

This is a nice 'n' easy song, that sounds great when played with a full
band. Normal tuning, listen to the CD to get the rhythm. (I apologise in
advance for any mistakes — this is pretty much the first bass tab I've ever
submitted...)
