Comments: Transcribed this because for years, the only
available tab for this song on the web was pitifully incomplete
and the new one is not very accurate in some parts. Why??
This version attempts to be as accurate as possible, taking into
account the weird and wonderful things the bass line is doing.
This is a song with amazing harmonic changes, obviously composed
on the piano. So you'd need a capo to be on the right key.

Note: A chord like /D means just do a D bass note.
