    I cannot find this tab or sheet music anywhere. I just got this CD and damn this song has a cool groove. Can any one help me out? Also looking for "Can You Handle It" but probably can get that on my own.

    Heres what I got so far:

    |-----------|-------------------------|
    |-----------|-------------------333s5|
    |-3 3 0---3-|-x 3333 0--3--3355------|
    |-------3---|---------3---------------|

    |--------------------------|
    |-------------3h5---------|
    |--------------------------|
    |-5p333-3h5x-----5p333---|

    Im not completely sure about the crawl to F but its close.

    Chorus is just a slap slide into C with octave then A and then A#. Maybe add a couple mutes at the end to mix it up.

    Well man. There's not much to it. There isn't really a worked out bass line on this one as opposed to just about every other GCS song there is. Mostly he plays along the lines of this though:

    D----3----1-3-----
    A-----------------
    E0/1---------------

    That is, if memory serves me right. Whole thing's slapped popped of course. But really, you can get away with just about anything F7-ish on this one.
    Good luck
