Right, here is my transcription of the bass part ( yes, including solo!) to the Red Hot Chili Peppers song Stone Cold Bush from Mother's Milk. 

It is not perfect and if you have any corrections, additions or suggestions just email me. I also would like to ask the help of the technical experts as to how Flea gets the sound he does on the high notes in the solo. I have marked then with a ~ as vibrato, but I'm not sure that is correct and I can't get that sound.

I figured this out all on my own with my Bass Collection SB301 and a Peavy TKO 110. 

Key:

Above the line:

V = The downbeat. Hence four in each bar.
v = The upbeat. As in one-AND-two-AND-... THe AND is the upbeat.

>NB. I have only put the upbeat in the the bits that need it, mostly the solo.

Below the line:

(___) = Triplet
  3 
+ = Slap with thumb
^ = Pop with finger.

In the TAB:

||--
||o- = The beginning of a repeat. The end is the same 
||o-   but backwards
||--

~ = Vibrato. I think, see above.
10h12 = Hammer-on from 10th fret to 12th.
3p0 = Pull-off from 3rd to open.
X = A slap where the note is muted.


If this is printed in Courier 12pt it should come out fairly nicely although spread out over three pages.
