Petty, Tom — Too Good To Be True bass tabs


Tom Petty — Too Good To Be True (Bass)

When I was writing this tab, I noticed that the recording has a slightly different
tuning, but the tab notes are correct. It's standard tuning but just play
with the tuning on your bass until it sounds okay.

I wrote everything out and in order because when I read a tab I always like
to just read it through, so hopefully that helps those of you reading this.
