Speed Of Light Bass Tab

   
Speed of Light

Tabbed by: Evan Curtis

Okay so I have kind of fixed this up a bit, since I tabbed it out around three years ago.
Most of the song is relatively simple, with the exception of the first run.
The jump from G1 to D9 is pretty tough at that speed, so if you want you could just
	play the 6431 as (11)986.
The other jumps are equally as difficult, so I've tabbed out an alternate way to play.
Also, I apologize for the spacing, but Jari's playing style incorporates so many sixteenth
	notes that the tab would be very large and hard to read otherwise.
