It Will Rain - Bruno Mars Tabbed by: Radagast27 [http://www.youtube.com/user/Radagast27] March 3, 2013 E-mail: christopher.willett@gmail.com Tuning: standard Note: This song does not really have a traditional bass part, but this is what I play when I cover this song. It fits nicely. I tend to play more notes and connecting bits than transcribed here, but this is the core of what I play.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x2DdCgEcXZE&lc=aP8fI63pQrVWSLBbOKq0OJzlFkRTtEBNUjMK2PXVVTY (I posted this video long before I made this tab and I was just improvising. Due to several requests for tabs in the comments, I decided to finally do it. This tab is somewhat based on how I played it originally, minus the various flubs I made) Update: I just did a video of this song specifically using this tab. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fF2YSlVV-s8&list=PL95ACFA76E5CE30DA&index=2 Check out my other bass cover videos on my YouTube channel! http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL95ACFA76E5CE30DA | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note
