Bela Lugosis Dead Bass Tab

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                              BELA LUGOSI'S DEAD - BAUHAUS
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Myself
E-mail: h.abualtin@yahoo.com

Tuning: Standard



My first tab! I just got a bass guitar and given that Bauhaus is one of my favorite bands,
I figured I'd give "Bela Lugosi's Dead" a spin as the bass part is so distinct in this song.
This is the recorded single version as played by David J. In general, notes are allowed to ring.
Listen to the recording to get a sense for how long to let them ring. If anyone notices something
off or missing, let me know, but otherwise I think this is pretty much it. Song timings are
given periodically to help keep track of where you are in the song.
