Can't Stop - Bass tab

By the Red Hot Chili Peppers
>From the Album "By the Way"
Tabbed by Tim Marti (mynameisgreat@hotmail.com)

Normal tuning

Since this is such a great song, I decided to tab out every
variation, the rhythmin on the verse is kind of hard, but
listen to it about 50 times and you might figure it out

Intro: (x8) Steadily gets louder each measure

Verse: I'm not sure if he is slapping or not, but
this is the way I play it, sounds right. You have to
hit the mutes right before the octaves
