Standard tuning

Comments: This bassline, like all of AceĀ“s songs after his
1978 solo album, was played by Ace himself. It shows too,
the riffs are kind of funky and are nowhere near what Gene
would have played.

Key:
/    = slide up
\    = slide down
b    = bend (whole step)
b^   = bend (1/2 step)
b^^  = bend (1 1/2 steps)
pb   = pre-bend
r    = release-bend
t    = tap with righthand finger
h    = hammer-on
p    = pull-off
~    = Vibrato
*    = Natural Harmonic
#(#) = Trill
x    = Dead notes (no pitch)
P.M. = Palm mute (- -> underneath indicates which notes)
Tp   = Tap w\plectrum
