[For those of you who don't know what D.C al fine means, it means do the first line and
go to the next line after it, then repeat the first line and go to the next line with
the Fine on top, in this case it means on the third line on this riff]

The next two lines are to be played very fast! About 200-220 bpm (presto). But to make
it easier, just hammer on and pull off all the notes. The fingering is also put above
the tablature. 1=pointer finger, 2=middle finger, 3=ring finger, 4=pinky. I am sorry
if these fingerings do not satisfy you and feel uncomfortable.

The next line involves fingerpicking, I know some of you people may be saying  what the
heck?! Fingerpicking on a bass?! But you may be forgeting that it helps you build stength
in you fingers. Use the fingering above, except you thumb is 0 and the note is 0 ironically.
