We don't get tabs. We don't get music written for bass. We rarely play in the same key as the original. We generally get a chord chart and a vocal melody line. If you can read, you can use passages from the melody to enhance your bass lines, but otherwise it's play by feel. Gotta know the key you are in, the intervals, the chord tones. Tabs? We don't need no stinkin' tabs.
