Papercut
5 String Bass - Standard Tuning
Tabbed by: PitchImperfect
Date: 18/04/06

Here's my take on Papercut.  I've tried to be as detailed as possible even down to the 
note differences (you can see that on the outro).
The intro and chorus don’t sound right at first.  At first I thought it went:
G|------------------------------|
D|------------------------------|
A|-------76-62--2-2-----2h4-----|
E|----------------------4-------|
B|-2-2-2------------------------|
But it didn’t quite sound right.  If you listen really carefully you can hear it is 
how I’ve written it below.
You might want to play it the way I’ve written it above, it kinda sounds better, but I 
you the one below is more accurate.
Also you can play the outro in 3 different hand positions.  I’ve written the one I find 
most comfortable and sounds the best on my bass.
Hope you enjoy it, let me know what you think.

                                      You might find it more comfortable

For anyone wondering, this should be in C# Phrygian (origin from D major scale)
It sounds better if you move some of the notes in the intro into this scale, but it doesn't really matter as its a very percussive bass line anyway
