I Can Only Imagine Bass Tab

   
I Can Only Imagine Bass Tab
Album: Almost There (2001)

Very easy song, but you can add different fills and stuff. The verse follows a simple 
E-E-A chord progression, while the
chorus follows an A-B-E-E progression.

The bass doesn't come in until the beginning of the second verse. Listen for the rhythm 
- its easy to play along to, but
hard to find the exact patern MercyMe's bassist (Nathan Cochran) uses here, as there are 
heavy layers of guitars, drums,
and strings over the bass. The notes are all correct, however.
