    Hey everyone, does anyone know where I can find a GOOD or at least halfway right bass tab for this song? I found a site or 2 but the tab is just plain wrong and incomplete.
    May those who find the correct tab be stricken with the ultimate bass playing skills......... :bassist:
    Thanks!!

    Here's the song: What I Am

    This is how I play it.

    WHAT I AM - Edie Brickel and the New Bohemians

    S = Slide preceding note to the next note

    ( ) = hold note for extra count.
