Beatles tabs

Im Only Sleeping bass tab

The Beatles
Revolver
I'm only sleeping

Ok..as i searched the web i could not find a single version of this tab, so like
a real musician, i did it myself. I'm pretty sure this song is played on an upright and there is alot
of scales and stuff going on, but hopefully this tab will give a general idea to
everyone like me who just wants to jam to Beatles songs. Also, sometimes on an Eb it sounds like its in
a lower octave, so you may have to tune your E string down a half step or something.

Verse
|----------------------------------------------------------|
|---------------------6---6-------4---------4--------------|
|---6---6-------------------------------2-------1-----4----|
|-----------5h6-5h6----------------------------------------|
this is where those wacky scales go and I'm not good enough to figure them out
|---------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------6---6-----4-------4-------------------------|
|---6---6-------------------2-------2-----2--1------------|
|-----------------------------------------------4---2-----|

Chorus
|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------4---------------6------------------------------------|
|---------------4---------------6-------1-----2---6---6---6--6---3---6-|
|---2---2---2---------4---4---4----------------------------------------|

Riff 1
|-----------3----------|
|-------4-------4------|
|---6------------------|
|----------------------|

then repeat the verse, chorus, riff 1

Riff 2
|-----------3----------|
|-------4-------1------|
|---6------------------|
|----------------------|

Bridge: [keeping an eye] (add a bit of improv here)
|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----2-------0---------------------------2---0-------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------6---4--4---|
|-------------------------4---4---2---2---------------------------|

then do half a verse then comes the backwards guitar solo which basically is this
|---------------------------------------|
|-----1---------------------------------|
|---------------------2---------2-------|
|-----------4-----2---------2-----------|

then the chorus, then riff 1 then riff 2 then bridge then a verse then chorus then riff 1

I know its a little weak but its better than nothing.
