    Are you talking about the part that could be described as sounding like "dunka dua"? If so I believe its double thumbing. If you do a search youll find a bunch of threads explaining that
  4. I'm just listening to a live version of it but i think its
    t , lh, p, t,t,t,t

    And on the cheesy page the tab is
    d d S P S P S P
    d = downstroke

    when i first started playing bass, this was the challenging song that i always longed to learn..... it took me about a year before i found out how he really plays it.... i found this out because Kazaa came out (video downloads!) i downloaded him playing it live....... what he does is the is muting the strings......

    First, the left-hand (fingering hand) explanation: he keeps his pointer on the strings to mute them... the rest of his fingers (middle-pinky) hit the strings lightly to mute them...

    Right hand- he is slapping and popping (actually pretty slowly).... he slaps his E or A string, mutes with his left hand by hitting the strings, then pops the G string, and mutes with his left hand again.

    This sounds very confusing but find the video or download the live version and watch his hands.....

    Hope you get it!
    Good luck,
