Hold On Loosely Bass Tab

   
************************************
* "HOLD ON LOOSELY" BY .38 SPECIAL *
************************************
TAB by: Bigjtut
Tuning: Regular (E,A,D,G)
Time Measure: 4/4
Notes: 
 When you see this in my tabs
           (hq)
 that is how I portray notes tied together.
 This example is a half note tied with a 
 quater note (three beats).

 w = whole note     e = eighth note
 q = quarter note   s = sixteenth note
 / = slide up       \ = slide down
 h = hammer down    r = rest

 Read this TAB straight through.  You should also listen to the song
 so you can understand how this TAB is just a good basic idea.  The
 bass line of this song is a lot of fun because of the different fills
 you can throw in at any time.

WHEN YOU ARE REPEATING THESE TWO LINES FOR THE REST OF THE SONG,
MAKE SURE TO REPLACE THE FIRST NOTE WITH AN OPEN 'E'.  ALSO, THIS
IS WHERE YOU GET TO HAVE A LOT OF FUN PLAYING DIFFERENT FILLS.
