Song Title: Add It Up

Ok, this song is relatively simple, excluding the many bass solos.
And it was also very hard to tab. I'm sure the verse and other
parts are correct, almost sure on the solos.

h = hammer on
~ = Let Ring
p = pull off

Ok, that is the basic outline of the song, just follow above.
Now i'm gonna put one of the solos...it contains a lot of the
parts of the other solos in the song

G|------------------------------------------------------------
D|-9-7----7------------------------------7-10-9-7-------------
A|-----10---10-9-7-9-7----------9-10-9-7----------10-9-7------

G|-9--11--13--14--16------------------------------------------|
D|-7--9---11--12--14-------------------7h9p7------------------|
A|------------------------------7-9-10-------9h10p9-7---------|
E|-----------------------7-9-10-----------------------10-9-7--|

That's basically the main riff with some variations to it
it's close enough.

And then there is the soft part:

E|-7~--22-5--7~--22-5--7~--22-5--7~--22-5-5-5~---5-5~--|

And that's basically the whole song..just repeat parts.
Also just use different variations of the solo on those
solo parts
