Toes Across The Floor - Blind Melon
from the album Soup
as transcribed by Andrew
Awilliamson49@hotmail.com

If you ask me, Toes Across The Floor is the most outstanding Blind Melon song for bass guitar.  At first it sounds intimidating, admittedly Brad Smith is an excellent and very imaginative bass player, but after a couple of playings it's not too bad and a lot of fun to play.

Below are the main riffs and fills and below that is where they're played.  It may not be note for note, but it's pretty close.  Happy Playing!
