Leaving New York bass tab

Song: Leaving New York

Nice Song
The Tab is a bit lengthly , as I have included all the variations Mike plays.
I've got the timing as close as I possibly can. Listen to the CD if you have problems.
On the other hand, comments and corrections are welcome - Mrooze@yahoo.com
Mail me if you have any othe REM Bass Tab requests. I'll see what I can do.
