I haven't transcribed the harmonics at the end yet, but I will update this tab as soon as I get around to it. Also, if anybody wants the powertab file, email me and I will send it to you. Duration Legend --------------- W - whole; H - half; Q - quarter; E - 8th; S - 16th; T - 32nd; X - 64th; a - acciaccatura + - note tied to previous; . - note dotted; .. - note double dotted Uncapitalized letters represent notes that are staccato (1/2 duration) Irregular groupings are notated above the duration line Duration letters will always appear directly above the note/fret number it represents the duration for. Duration letters with no fret number below them represent rests. Multi- bar rests are notated in the form Wxn, where n is the number of bars to rest for. Low melody durations appear below the staff Tablature Legend ---------------- h - hammer-on p - pull-off b - bend pb - pre-bend r - bend release (if no number after the r, then release immediately) /\ - slide into or out of (from/to "nowhere") s - legato slide S - shift slide - natural harmonic [n] - artificial harmonic n(n) - tapped harmonic ~ - vibrato tr - trill T - tap TP - trem. picking PM - palm muting \n/ - tremolo bar dip; n = amount to dip \n - tremolo bar down n/ - tremolo bar up /n\ - tremolo bar inverted dip = - hold bend; also acts as connecting device for hammers/pulls <> - volume swell (louder/softer) x - on rhythm slash represents muted slash o - on rhythm slash represents single note slash Misc Legend ----------- | - bar || - double bar ||o - repeat start o|| - repeat end *| - double bar (ending) : - bar (freetime) $ - Segno & - Coda Tempo markers - = BPM(8/16=s8/s16), where s8 = swing 8ths, s16 = swing 16ths *************************************************************************************** * Generated using Power Tab Editor by Brad Larsen - http://powertab.guitarnetwork.org * *************************************************************************************** Solar Groove - Bass Tab Author - Johann Lau Solar Groove Performed by John Myung Tabbed By Johann Lau

There you have it. This one is pretty accurate. Myung plays this one on 5 string bass, but i've adapted it here for a 4 string so you might have to reach a little more. Special thanks to Justin Sepulveda for helping me out with those harmonics. Enjoy.
