COME BACK
=========
transcription by Mark Kennedy and Ryq

Note: There are numerous bass and guitar fills throughout the song, 
      but these three contribute most to the flow of the song.

  verse bass fill:
G|-----------------|
D|-2-2-2-2-2-0-----|  Bass plays this fill twice
A|-------------2-0-|  during the verses.
E|-----------------|

  prechorus bass riff:
G|---------------------------------| 
D|-----1-1-4-4-1-1-----1-1-4-4-1-1-|  Bass plays this riff when
A|-2-2-------------2-2-------------|  the guitar plays the B chord.
E|---------------------------------|

  chorus bass riff:
G|---------|       |---------|       This bass riff is played during the
D|---------|       |---------|       "you've got to come back" portion of
A|-----5-5-| (4x)  |-----2-2-| (4x)  the choruses.  This riff may also be
E|-3-3-----|       |-0-0-----|       played one octave higher.
