    I don't care if you show me tab or musical notation. I have kind of a running argument with band mates that have talked about playing this song. We all seem to be hearing it differently, and I am looking for an outsider's ears/transcription on the basic groove.

    Thanks in advance.

    ok... Bump...

    For what it's worth, I'm hearing this groove as Thump on C on the A string -- slide or hammer up to the D, than pop the D (octave) on the G string, then Pop the C on the G string, thumb the C (down an octave on the A string), and finally thumb the low D (below bottom E on my E string).

    There's lots of little variations of this, but this is what I am hearing as the main groove. Comments?? I know other people here have learned this song...
