I'm trying to learn Shooting Star by Bad Company on the bass. It doesn't sound very complicated but there are a lot of fills and variations that need to be figured out. Does anybody have this tabbed out or does any body know the song well enough to tab it out? The tab on this site is terrible. We need a new one.

This is where I am so far
Tuning: Standard

| X=10
| E=11
| / slide up
| \ slide down
| h hammer-on
| p pull-off
| b Bend
| ~ vibrato
| + harmonic
| x Mute note

Added up to the pre-Chorus.
Nah, the songster tab did't really help, but thanks.

Something doesn't sound quite right on the low note in the Chorus. Am I suppose to be playing in drop D or tuned half a step down? Was it played on a 5 string?

No it sounds like standard. These are the (1st) chorus notes pretty accurately..

GP6 text export is all over the place as usual so I had to use .png
I've never played a bass but the Xs are dead note open string (don't know what the technique is). The bends are prebends and then release..try it out

Okay updated. I think I'm close. Please play through it and point out any missing or incorrect notes. Also where it says "Bends or slides?" I just can't get it quite correct, not really sure what I'm missing. I'm thinking ill just say Jam out the outro because that is basically what's happening.
