Crash Love (2009)

Tune half a step down.

This tab will be totally confusing in parts. I did a cover on Youtube which might help 
a bit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1cG40mLehU

There's a tapping part in there which I had no idea how to notate in tab form so just 
a bit, or watch the video and try get the gist of it from there.

There's also an effect in the tapping bit, I don't know what Hunter used but I did it 
a wah and flanger together and it sounded okay. But it's not
necessary - it sounds fine when your bass is just normal. I doubt it's perfect but most 
sound alright.

x - mute
/ - slide up
\ - slide down
h - hammer on
p - pull off
> - strum (listen for changes)
~ - let ring

Intro part one:
Gb|------------------------|
Db|------------------------|
Ab|------------------------|x2
Eb|-1h33-xx-1h33-xx-1h3-xx-|

Intro part two:
Gb|-----------------------|-----------------------|
Db|-----------------------|-----------------------|
Ab|---------------1-------|---------------1h3-1h3-|x2
Eb|-1h33-1-3-1h33---3-1h3-|-1h33-1-3-1h33---------|

Verse = Intro part two x4

Right before the chorus, slide up to Ab|-17- and play the note a few times

Chorus
Gb|--------------|-----------------|
Db|--------------|-----------------|
Ab|-6>--------6\-|-------x1-1------|
Eb|----3h5-6>----|-1> 3>------x1-1-|

Gb|--------------|-------|
Db|--------------|-------|
Ab|-6>--------6\-|----3>-|
Eb|----3h5-6>----|-1>----|

Rest for a bit after the chorus, then is this little bass-tapping solo.
Gb|-15--10p8p0--17--10p8p0--14--10p8p0--15--10p8p0-|x3

Gb|-15--10p8p0--17--10p8p0--14--10p8p0--19~--|x1

Verse 2
Gb|--------|-------------|----------|---------------------|
Db|------5-|-----5-------|------5---|-555-----------------|
Ab|--------|-------5-3---|----------|-----5-----------1h3-|
Eb|-3333---|-333-------3-|-3333---3-|-------3-111-1h3-----|

Gb|--------|----------|----------|------------------|
Db|-5555---|-5555-----|-5555-----|-5555-------------|
Ab|--------|------5---|------5---|------5-----------|
Eb|------3-|--------3-|--------3-|--------3-1~~-3~~-|

Repeat chorus as before

Rest for a little

Bridge
Gb|----| |------------------|   |-------------------------|
Db|----| |------------------|   |-----10-------10--10-10--|
Ab|----| |-----/17-17-17-17-|x3 |-888----8--88-------8--8-|x1
Eb|-xx-| |-6\---------------|   |-------------------------|

Gb|------------------|
Db|-------------7--8-|
Ab|----------8-------|x1
Eb|-3--5--6----------|

Chorus again (rest for first part this time!)
Gb|--------------|-----------------|
Db|--------------|-----------------|
Ab|-----------6\-|-------x1-1------|
Eb|--------6>----|-1> 3>------x1-1-|

Gb|--------------|--------------------|
Db|--------------|--------------------|
Ab|-6>--------6\-|----333/15-15-15-15-|
Eb|----3h5-6>----|-1>-----------------|

Repeat the chorus a couple more times, throw in a few octaves for good measure.
I know Hunter does but I can't be bothered to tab them all out.

Ending
Gb|---------------|
Db|---------------|
Ab|-5/10~---5/10~-|
Eb|---------------|
