Pearl Jam - Alive - Bass Tablature

by Michael Lamberti (mvlamberti@earthlink.net)

This is my first tab.  I did this because all the other tabs for this,
that I've seen, are wrong.  This may not be 100% correct, but it's damn
near close to it.  Any suggestions, comments, complaints or whatever,
just email me.

Jeff plays this on a fretless.  Listen to the song to get the timing
of the slides.  Some of the slides won't sound good on a fretted bass,
but what the hell, right? :)

The Outro is more or less the same as the chorus, just play some of the
notes an octave higher and add some of your own flare and what not.

This is the little end solo (if you'd even call it that).
