Music Of The Mind Bass Tab

As with all of Stu's bass lines, he improvises a lot, so much that there is 
almost no one "basic line". Therefore with this great song I have just 
transcibed what i see to be the basic line, hopefully presenting you with a 
starting point from which you can work out all of stu's variations and/or 
hopefully come up with some of your own!! There are three main sections in 
this song.
Basic tab conventions
*= dead note  p= pull off
h= hammer on

The Intro

The intro line has four main chords, and lot's of variations of these four 
main chords can be played. In this stu does a lot of bends(up), so i have 
bracketted the notes that he bends, however this does not mean that he bends 
these notes every time!! He also often pulls on to the notes i have 
bracketted, from the fret immediately after the note eg pull off the 5th 
fret to the 4th fret. This line has so many variations yet i can't be 
bothered writing them all out!

The Fast Section
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/j/jamiroquai/music_of_the_mind_btab.html ]
After the intro the song drops into a much faster paced section, and stu's 
line provides endless opportunities for variations! Once again i've just 
transcribed the "basic line". In about the middle of this section there is a 
sort of break, where the basic chords above are played and then it drops 
back into the fast paced section, where stu plays a very fast variation, 
which i've tabbed what i think he plays (bit of a challenge). Each bar is 
repeated, and

The End Section

After the fast section the song goes into a new section with the bass 
running up and down some scale (some major scale variation i think...i am 
weak on theory haha). This can be varied a lot, including playing fast 
triplets on some of the notes like stu does.
