Sir Duke

Bassist: Nathan Watts
Tabbed by: Karlin McNeill ([email protected])

Although it is probably safe to say Nathan Watts probably 
performed this on a 4-string, I personally believe it is 
better played on a 5-string. This allows you to remain 
comfortably within a 7-fret area while playing the horn 
break/solo. 

Still, to be respectful to Mr. Watt?s musicianship and the 
original recording, I tabbed this in 4-string anyway.

My tab here is based on the illustrious contribution of 
Julian Wathen (email: [email protected]), whose tab 
made the following possible.

NOTE: While I have included the (basic) chorus here, 
Mr. Watts' approach to the second and third runs of the 
chorus is not restricted to that; his approached has an 
improvised and freer feel. Yours should be similar.
