Frank Turner Bass Tabs (And the distinct lack of them)

Every amateur guitar/ bass player who hasn't taken the time to go and learn to be able to sight read sheet music is reliant on tabs to learn pretty much anything and everything they want to play. Unfortunately for me there's an absolutely massive lack of bass tabs for most of Frank Turner's songs, and, being a huge FT fan I'd love to be able to break out into "Peggy Sang the Blues" every now and again, but I can't because there's no tabs and frankly, I'm not what you'd call a master at working things out by ear so there's not much hope in that department! If anyone knows a good site I could find the tabs for his songs on or if you've even got the time to work it out and post the tabs then that would be much appreciated :) By the way I've already rooted out the tabs for Photosynthesis and Nashville Tennessee :)

Hi Joe,

I've tabbed the different parts for Peggy below for you. I'm afraid I haven't got time to tab the song in full before we head back to the US in a couple of weeks, but the below should give you enough to go on to work the variations out.

This is brilliant!
The only other song i'd just love to nail on bass is One foot before the other, that has a fantastic bassline, no tabs out there in the wild wild internet :(
