Tune half a step down.


There's a tapping part in there which I had no idea how to notate in tab form so just 
a bit, or watch the video and try get the gist of it from there.

There's also an effect in the tapping bit, I don't know what Hunter used but I did it 
a wah and flanger together and it sounded okay. But it's not
necessary - it sounds fine when your bass is just normal. I doubt it's perfect but most 
sound alright.

x - mute
/ - slide up
\ - slide down
h - hammer on
p - pull off
> - strum (listen for changes)
~ - let ring

Rest for a bit after the chorus, then is this little bass-tapping solo.

Repeat the chorus a couple more times, throw in a few octaves for good measure.
I know Hunter does but I can't be bothered to tab them all out.
