Stand By Me Tab

Misc:
 Once again, I set out to find a decent tab and failed to find one. The notes I
transcribed were played on a bass guitar in the song, but it seems like many people 
(such as myself) would like to give it a go as a guitar solo. I listened to the song
about 400 times, checking my notes.. playing along.. fixing my notes, checking again.
You get the idea. I put a considerable effort into it and it sounds better than what
I've found so far. But like I said, it was played on a bass so it's not gonna sound as
low as in the song.

Experiment with palm muting while you play, makes it sound closer to the song.

(repeat both segments throughout whole song.)

Listen to the actual song then give this tab a few tries. Hope you like it.
