Stratosphere Bass Tab

Stratosphere
Stratovarius
Tabbed by: Evan Curtis

I have given up on writing a 4-string tab for this. 
I tried, and the modes get so weird that it's not even worth learning.
I'm fairly certain that the song can be played in standard tuning, and that one
	A# would just be an octave up, but I really wanted that low rumble resolution. 
The spacing is hard to read, but trust me, reading through this thing at twice the size
	would be more difficult. 
This song is perfect for building up speed and endurance, and that's why I tabbed it
	out in the first place. 

Fast part 1 (Guitar starts, then you play a single note, rest, and fast run)
