Black Mambo  Madrugada

Author/Artist: Madrugada
Title: Black Mambo
Album: The Nightly Disease
Transcribed by: DMS & RH
Standard tuning (EADGBE)
This is the cool bassriff that is played in the begining of the
song. (And also throughout the song)
"Arranged" for guitar. I think. I've never played a bass, but it's
pretty cool to play this on a normal guitar...

I sometimes use powercords on the first and the two last notes.
Just for the fun of it..
