House Of Fun Bass Tab

   
Song: House of Fun
Artist: Madness
Tabbed by: ١rir H. Bergsson

Since I could not find a bass tab for this song anywhere I decided to tab it myself.
It's as exact as it gets, in my opinion, but I can always be wrong so please comment on it.
This song is mighty fun and, if done well, the bass can doodle a bit in between these 
which are all exactly like on the record.
You can move the notes lower or higher on the neck of the bass as you wish, but since 
tends to play higher up on the neck and I hate two-digid numbers in tabs I wrote it like this:
Remember: to get the timing right you need to listen to the song. Have fun, cheers!
