                The King is dead but not his music!
Every bass player should have played at least one time 
in his life such a song based on a very common blues riff.

I found no instance of a bass tab for this song on the Web.
The timing is correctly tabbed.

You can simply play the one below which is very similar to the one played
during the first guitar solo.
