    Hi guys. I've looked all over the internet for the tabs but I haven't found them, actually very little of Graham's basslines are in tab or bass clef...

    I know most of the song already, I just need some help with the intro. The third time he bends the intro riff up to a new harmony. What are those four damn notes? Does he go to a G----- G-F-D-C ?

    My fretted Jazz is at the practice spot untill this weekend and I'm trying to figure it out on my fretless Jazz. Between Graham bending those notes, and my Mexican Jazz with great (sarcasm) intonation, I'm having a bit of a hard time...

    And speaking of slapping a fretless, has anyone ever installed one fret at the 21st fret position on a fretless? Would that work to get more of a fretted bass tone and save the neck from slapping?

    Thanks for all replies and help!
