This is an update of a tab by Dr. Willove, who seemed to have made a start but
already seemed a bit lost!! Anyway — here's the version that I've been playing
in my band "Zeus" for a few years now. The timing can be difficult so listen to
the record.

E——————————————————————————————s4——s4———————s4———s4————



(There are several versions of this song — if you have the super extended
instrumental version then repeat chorus again — then there's a little bass solo)

BASS SOLO — very staccato (clipped sounding)

G———————pp8—————————pp6——————————pp6—————————pp7—pp9—pp10—pp9—pp7—
D———————————————————————————————————————pp9———————————————————————
A———s6————————s4——————————s4——————————————————————————————————————
E————————————————————————————————————s7———————————————————————————



Thats all there is to it —

h — hammer on
p — pull off
s — slap
pp — pull off
