Feeding The Addiction lessons Tabs too difficult? Try these video lessons and learn fast
                Hmm, well, this is my first *official* tab.  So, go easy on the rating, if you may.
I decided to learn Feeding the Addiction by ear because, while listening to Prime Cuts, 
heard this very
interesting slap bass riff and I was intrigued.
This is written completely by ear by the way, so give me some credit for at least trying 
get it.
It is a pretty tough song to play, especially if you consider all of the different 
that goes
behind all of what's going around in the foreground and drum beat and because of the 
and rhythm of the bass.
So, I took the time to learn how to play it after searching endless hours for a tab.
Yes, I CAN read music, but I prefer to use tab as they are much more accessible, 
readable and easy.
So, here's the song.  I didn't quite know all of it, via the Outro, but I'm trying.
If anyone has the missing parts, please, send it to me, before I figure it out before 
;)

Thanks and have fun!

Part, you can just pull off and hammer on.  This is a much easier way.  Also, I suggest 
double thump for it due to the rhythmic patterns.

Thanks, and have fun with your bassing. :)
