                "Just" by Radiohead


I've seen the bassline for this song butchered all over the internet.  
Here's my interpretation of it, and in my opinion, the correct one.

***This is definitely not the "easy" version of this song, but it's not 
exactly the "hard" version either.  

If you want to play this song casually, you're reading the wrong tab.  
If you want to learn this song for real, pick up your bass, and lets get 
started.

Now to get the rhythm down, I suggest playing along with the cd (or mp3)
a few times.  It's too hard (and confusing) to imply rhythm in a guitar 
tab.


(Guitar starts alone for one measure, then the rest of the band starts)

There you go!  I know it's a lot to remember, but it's really not that 
difficult.  You just have to remember which parts go where.  

Feel free to post this somewhere else if you choose to, but please give 
me the credit for writing it out.  It took me a long time to complete.
