    I found a TB entry a few years old but no one seemed to know the tab for the song Tequila. The basic toggle riff is easy to discern in the old recording but I think the walkiing part in the bridge is non-conventional and I'm having difficulty finding it. IF you play this song and would like to help out please do! Thank you!

    I gave it a listen, and this is what I hear... this is sort of an aggregate of the two bridges: The first bridge has a couple of the notes dropped out, and the second bridge plays the 4th bar the same as the 2nd instead of the variation here.

    Try it and see what you think.

    Wow! Thanks for doing the heavy lifting by transcribing those passages. I just now saw your reply and haven't picked up the bass but tomorrow morning I'm going to print it up and see how it plays out.

    I really do appreciate you diving in....

    My best~

    Thanks from me as well! The band was just working on this song last night. Odd coincidence! I play the sax part and hand over bass to one of the guitar players. Great timing!

    I got to play it this morning and if your transcription isn't exactly right, it's absolutely close enough because it works. None of the guys in the band would notice any deviation from the original.

    Thanks again for your great help!
