This tab is 100% verified live with binoculars on Justin Chancellor! I was in the 6th row!
Please note this song is NOT tuned in DADA as many people claim (Even the guy in Bass Player magazine is WRONG!!)
Justin has never in any interview or press claimed it was tuned DADA.
 
This song was recorded with an Ernie Ball Music Man stingray but Justin now plays it live with his Wal bass.
