  1. i have just been listening to this song and was wondering, is that intro part played on the bass? it sounds to me like it is but i've been searching through tab and no 1 has tabbed it, so if the intro is on the bass does n e 1 know where i can get the tab for it. Thanx

    It's not on the bass, it's on the guitar and I'm positive on that. but it goes something like:

    E|-----------------------------------|
    B|-----------------------------------|
    G|-----------------------------------|
    D|-----------------------------------|
    A|---1---1-1-1--------1---3-1-1^3--|
    E|-3---3-------3-1^3---3------------|

    Or at least I think so!

    Obviously you can play this on the bass as it only uses the bottom 2 strings.

    Hope that was helpful.
