                        Final Fantasy I - Battle BASS TAB

There's already a good tab for this, but I thought I'd tab out another way to 
play it, which includes some of the higher stuff, which is also played on the 
triangle wave part.

EDIT: I've updated the GP5 to go with the recording I did, it includes the guitar
parts as well.  It's not exactly the same as this, but the text below is slightly
more true to the original.

Five-string bass, standard tuning.
