Smoke On The Water (ver3) Bass Tab - Deep Purple






This is one of my favorite songs ever! The only sad part is that the bass doesn't play
the famous line. No one should have problems, 'cause this is 100% right. (I listen to
it about 15 times a day!)

 I've condensed the tab for space, but most of it is constant 8th notes.
   This is what bass plays at famous guitar line.
