Tuning - low to high - C, G, C, F

I just updated this on 11/29/05. Fixed a few minor errors and added the times.

notes:
the tildas (~~~~~~~) i use to show ringing notes or to emphasize letting that
note ring at the end of the measure or phrase

/ is a slide up the fretboard
h is for a hammer on


although I'm a finger bassist, I find it easier to play this song with a pick
like Shavo does so the notes can ring out 

easier
