as played on album "Orbiting Venus"


Another nice minor key slow walking bass thing, much like
'Concertina'. Enjoy.


'10' can sometimes mean 10th fret or second fret played quickly after
the first, but you should be able to gather that plainly from the
recording.

h over a note indicates a hammer on
x is a dead note, or close to
/ and \ indicate slides, play smoothly and it's fun on a fretless!

-- represents a quaver note

very slow 4/4 time
