I'm new here, although I love the site and discussion... So here's my n00b question. What exactly does (SN Bass F^G#-A-A#-B) refer to in the Althea tab?? I realize it refers to bass notes that coorespond to that portion of the verse, but the notation is new to me, any help would be great. thanks

SN = Single Note

For Althea I play the bassier strings for that part in the opening only (or always when solo acoustic). I find in a band setting you need something more midrange to cut in right.
