Does anyone know where I can find a bass tab for this song?
MARK GILLY GILLMAN 27/11/2004 - 11:22:49
check this website out for Bowies very early cord structure on SO, watch his fingers!!This may cover his early version of this song.However an artist is always obliged to change the chords and key to suit. http://www.bowieaudio.com/videos/space_oddity.html

Good stuff, cheers! Came in useful! although the C should have the bass G (C/E) and F should have the bass E (F/E). Of course it works without as well, but i think it gives a bit more depth. Otherwise, brilliant
ADOLF 15/2/2004 - 8:45:55
