    ok im a new bass player attempting to teach myself and im lookin at the tab for red hot chili peppers gong li(one of my fav songs) and i found the tab for it and im not really understanding it like in the first verse theres 3 0's meaning an open string but ive been listening to the song like over and over again and i cant hear the 3 open strings and when i try to play it it doesnt make sense

    if someone could look at this tab and look at the first verse and see if thats accurate thanks.
  2. If you can't hear the notes being played, there's a good chance that the tab is wrong. Tabs are not set in stone and correct. They're transcribed by ear and so it's easy to make mistakes.

    A lot of tabs are off and plenty are just plain wrong. There are often a number of different tabs for popular songs so check them all out and see what sounds right. Here is a good site if you haven't already seen it. http://www.mxtabs.net/basstabs.php
