        Final Fantasy V (SNES) - Battle on the Big Bridge BASS TAB
                      (A.K.A. Battle with Gilgamesh)
                          Song by Nobuo Uematsu

                 Tabbed by auriplane ([email protected])


The intro to this song requires a low B string, but I made a version
for four-string bass which is transposed an octave up.  I'll put the
four-string version first since that's what most people will want, but
to play it note-for-note you should do the five-string version.


                     Four-string bass, standard tuning.
                   (Scroll down for five-string version)

The intro is in 3/4 time.
