I couldn't find a bass tab for this anywhere so I decided I would create one to help the 
learn this song!

NOTES

IMPORTANT: the bar lines in this are not actually dividing the tab into bars. Instead i 
divided it into rounds, to try and make it easier to read.

All of the fills have been correctly written in, and despite me listing the names of 
I have set this out so you can just play from start to finish,
there is no need to jumble around the order at all. It does have an odd structure 
so the parts I have labelled are my interpretation of what that
part is, and may not reflect your own opinion, thus confuse you, so like I said, just 
through from start to finish and you'll see what I mean.

I have labelled the parts that require effects, the unlabelled parts require no effects.

If you have a 5 string then play the following (see below) for this part of the song. 
is however the only place in the song where
he uses the B string, so if like me you only have a 4 string, then play the one above. 
makes very little difference.
