Superunknown Bass Tab

   
Soundgarden - Superunknown
Superunknown
Dropped D, dropped G tuning. Play this tab in full order, just follow it 
through. Most of this was transcribed by ear but a few notes were fixed up by 
looking at the Guitar magazine version. I hope it is easy to follow. Once you 
get it down pat you will appreciate how much fun it is to play. Now and then 
when jamming I substitute the fill in here and there to spice it up a little. 
Don't overdo it though!

First 4 bars no bass.
