Well, in one of my fits of insanity, I arranged the Beatles' tune "Blackbird"
for bass.  The following is the arrangement, which combines the vocal line
and the guitar line.  I've worked on it on and off for about a week, and can
play it almost up to speed.  You will notice that some of the rhythms don't
add up per measure.  This is due to some notes in the chords having different
lenghts, which I can't show in tab.  Also, '$' means "D.S. Sign" and '@' is
a fermata.  The arrangement is in the original key (G), which means I
use 24 frets.  If you don't have 24 frets on your bass, just move everything
down a couple of frets.
 
Enjoy!
