BASS TAB:
BAND: Garbage
ALBUM: Version 2.0
TRACK: 5 - Special
PERSON WHO DID THIS TAB: Paul Simpson , porl@garbage.com

If you're going to download this, copy it into notepad because
that's where I wrote this and all the tabs and stuff will be in
the right places.

It took me ages to figure out this because there is a deep drum
and  it's hard to figure out whether the note is bass or the
drum. I'm sure it's correct now though.

The bass for this song is the same tune over and over in different
keys, so what I will do is tell you what the keys are and then go
through with the lyrics telling you what key to play. It will be
really hard to figure out the timing because tab is stupid, but
I'll try my best to tell you the timing.

Tune E string to E flat (tune for E with finger on fret one)
Tune A string to A flat (to make note transition easier)

KEY:
One space = half a beat (8th note)
_________= Hold the note
E.g.: 	A-14---  = play A-1 followed by A-4 as 2 8th notes.
	It's not fourteen, it's one and then four.
	A-1_	   = Hold this note for one beat (1/4 note)
	A-1__	   = Hold this note for 1 &1/2 beats (dotted 1/4)
	A-1_____   = Hold this note for 3 beats (dotted 1/2)
	A-1_______ = Hold this note for 4 beats (whole note)
	A-1_______________=Hold this note for 8 beats
			    (2 linked whole notes)

Ok then, here are the keys to play:

D# KEY:
G-----------------
D-1_1_-1_-1_1_-1__
A-----4--4----4---
E-----------------
  1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+





C KEY:
G-----------------
D-----------------	(C is on fret 4 because the string is
A-4_4_14_14_4_14__	 tuned to A flat so everything is moved
E-----------------	 up one)
  1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+

F KEY: (this one is a little irregular)
G-----------------
D-----------------
A-----------------	 (F is on fret 2 because string is tuned
E-2_2_02__2_2_02__ 	  to E flat)
  1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+

A# KEY:
G-----------------
D-----------------
A-2_2_-2_-2_2_-2__   (A# is on fret 2 because string is tuned to
E-----4--4----4---    A flat)
  1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+

G# KEY: (this is only played towards the end of the song)
G-----------------
D-----------------
A-0_0_-0_-0_0_-0__
E-----2--2----2---
  1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+

D-----------------
A---------0_______
E-2_____2_--------
  1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+

D-0_____----------
A-------4_2_______
E-----------------
  1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+

D---------------------------------
A-4_______________----------------
E-----------------4_______________
  1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+

D---------------------------------
A-4_______________----------------
E-----------------4_______________
  1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+


There, that's it. I hope it won't take you too long to get the
timing right and all that. But if you really want to get it
right your local music store would probably be able to order
(if it doesn't have in stock) the sheet music for this song.

Alright then, If you have any comments, suggestions, or questions,
