"That's Life" from Nektar's album _Down To Earth_
Written by Nektar, transcribed by Christopher C Heckman.
This is a personal interpretation of that song and is in no way are
connected 
with the actual music, other than the fact that it may bear a striking 
resemblence (at some future point) to the contents of these files.
Also, all songs are for private study alone; making money off of them
would violate various copyright laws.
********************************************************************************
This song is pretty much centered around the bassline, except for the
guitar
parts during the break (which I have yet to figure out). The appropriate 
basslines are:

    Part 1                         Part 2
G:--------------|--------------||--------------|--------------|
D:--------0--2--|--2--0--------||--------------|--------------|
A:--0--3--------|--------3--0--||--------0--2--|--2--0--------|
E:--------------|--------------||--0--3--------|--------3--0--|
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/n/nektar/thats_life_tab.html ]
    Part 3                            Part 4
G:--------------|-----|-----|-----||--------------|
D:--------------|-----|-----|-----||--------------|
A:--0--2--3--5--|--%--|--%--|--7--||--0--2--3--5--|
E:--------------|-----|-----|-----||--------------|

Part 1 gets played over the verses and chorus; Part 2 over the first set
of dit-dit-dit-dit's (4 times)(then 2 times without any lyrics); then
the
guitar goes crazy and plays a rapidly-strummed Am chord while the bass
does
some walking (all this 4x; I don't have the parts for this yet); then
Part 3
is played with the second set of dit's; the guitar goes crazy in Am
again for a
short while; then Part 4 is played twice. Now, after the first verse,
the
second verse is played along with Part 1, and the whole sequence
(described 
here) is repeated. After the second verse, the song runs out with Part
2.
(Listen to the recording; then this description will sound natural 8-).)
This
is actually the live version; on the album, P. P. Arnold sings a _very_
fast
lyric over Part 4 (I think), and I haven't checked how it goes out. But
this
is more than a start.  Incidentally, each line of lyric is played under
one
repition of Part 1, as written below:

It's not the way you do it, it's more the way you try,
Life is just confusion, and that's the reason why.
Take away the killer, take away his knife,
Take away his reasons, give him back his life.
Oooh, la-la-life.
