Bass tabs with lyrics

Album: The Blues Brothers: Original Soundtrack Recording (1980)

Standard tuning (EADG)


NOTE: I didn't realize until I got to the very last staff of this tab that
the song is actually played on a 5-string. I only have a 4-string, and as
there are only four notes you'd need the 5th string for, I didn't think it
worth retuning my entire bass. Instead, I tabbed the octaves of those notes
for us 4-stringers (indicated with an asterisk) and included a 5-string
version immediately after.

🏷Legend:
r = rest
X = muted strike
/ = slide up
s = 16th note (appears above bar)
