    Don't let the anti-TAB Fascists get to you. ;)

    Are you talking about the notes Cliff plays, or the actual sound of his bass? Cliff uses distortion and wah, but when I play it, I just use overdrive. The actual TAB is as follows:

    EDIT: Dammit! :mad: It won't line up properly on here and the file I posted looks like ass! If you have an e-mail address, PM me with it and I'll send it to you. :(

    Cliff uses wah and distortion. If you listen closely, you'll hear the bass for the intro lick, and for the rythm, they over dubbed 'em.

    There should be an applet enbedded in the forum that automattically spell checks and corrects the words!
  10. yes! and then we can make a device that hooks directly to your brain and types your thoughts into the computer! and then we can make a machine that generates your thoughts for you! also, a robot that wipes the drool off your chin as you gaze, glassy eyed, at the monitor! YES!*
