----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Song  : Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word
Artist: Elton John
Tabber: James Pucyk (pucyk_james@hotmail.com)

This is a pretty straight forward song, I tabbed it without an amp. But it does
sounds pretty damn accurate to me. This a pretty basic bassline and the bass
mainly accentuates the mood of this song, adds some drive and dimension to the
song with out detracting from the mellow, somber mood.
