Standard tuning

Comments: This was recently posted on the BTA by Steve Porsche
but his version only listed the first riff that the bass plays.
This is the real deal. This track appeared on their self-titled
"black" album and is played by, hold on to your hats, three
basses. That´s right, three. One is heavily effected, probably
some type of bass syntheziser while the other two are "clean".
I´ve arranged this barrage of bass here for one bass as it is
easily played that way. I do recommend a pick though. This is,
beside being a cool song, a good left hand exercise. It will
build stamina holding down those chords in the chorus.

Key:
/    = slide up
\    = slide down
b    = bend (whole step)
b^   = bend (1/2 step)
b^^  = bend (1 1/2 steps)
pb   = pre-bend
r    = release-bend
t    = tap with righthand finger
h    = hammer-on
p    = pull-off
~    = Vibrato
*    = Natural Harmonic
#(#) = Trill
x    = Dead notes (no pitch)
P.M. = Palm mute (- -> underneath indicates which notes)
Tp   = Tap w\plectrum
