Let It Rain Bass Tab

   
*********************************
* "LET IT RAIN" BY ERIC CLAPTON *
*********************************
TAB by: Bigjtut
Tuning: Regular
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

 Read this TAB straight through.  This was a pretty tough one to
 write because the timing is very important with this song.  Pay
 attention to the repeats.  Sorry about all of the "REPLACE LAST
 TWO MEASURES" stuff in here, but it was just easier than writing
 the whole thing out again.  But this song is a lot of fun for a
 bass player because bass is the bulk of this song.

REST FOUR BEATS THEN...
