Cake — The Distance (ver 5) bass tabs

The Distance by Cake
Tabbed by: Todd Cathey toddofla@yahoo.com

Another that is meant to be played on a 5—string
fretless bass. Only three parts to this bassline,
pieced together as I have below. A nice mid—range
tone is important, as is the ska/reggae feel.
Memorize the parts by playing the first 1 1/2 min
of the song; when you've got them down, take your
eyes off the tab and *feel* your way through the
song, putting all the parts together. Enjoy!

Notes on my tab:
/ = slide up to note
() = ghosted note
