Vermicide - The Mars Volta - Amputechture
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed By : Ethan Linck (Incubus_Science gave me a few corrections)
e-mail: ntkbassist@yahoo.com
Tuning: Standard

Bass by Juan Alderate

Here’s the bass tab for Vermicide, the projected first single off The Mars Volta’s new 
Amputechture. Fairly simple, but the timing  overall (in the chorus especially) can be a 
tricky. A nice bassline, with room for improvisation.

Key: F#

Verse 1

G|------------------------|
D|-----7h9---4--5--7------|  Repeat this section 6 times
A|-7----------------------|
E|---7--------------------|

Then, for the last two repetitions, he varies it up a little:

G|--------------------------|
D|-----7h9---4--5--7h9-7-5--|
A|-7------------------------|
E|---7----------------------|

G|-------------------------|
D|-----7h9---4--5--7h9-9-9-|
A|-7-----------------------|
E|---7---------------------|

Chorus:

G|-------------------------|
D|-------------------------|  Repeat this 3 times
A|-----7-----9--5----------|
E|----------------5-3-2----|

For the final repetition of the chorus, play this:

G|---------------------------|
D|---------------------------|
A|-----7-----9--5------------|
E|------------------5---8----|

Verse 2

G|------------------------|
D|-----7h9---4--5--7------|  Repeat this section 8 times
A|-7----------------------|
E|---7--------------------|


Chorus


Bridge (with slight overdrive):

G|-----------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------| Repeat 8 times
A|---------3--3-3----------5--5-5----3-0-3-|
E|-5--5-5----------3--3-3----------5-------|

Then play this 3 times:

G|----------------|
D|----------------|
A|-0-3-0-3--------|
E|----------------|

Then play this 4 times:

G|------------------------|
D|-----7h9---4--5--7------|  
A|-7----------------------|
E|---7--------------------|

Final Chorus:

G|-------------------------|
D|-------------------------|  Repeat this 3 times
A|-----7-----9--5----------|
E|----------------5-3-2----|

For the final repetition of the chorus, play this (a high end fill added):

G|---------------------------12-16-14-12-11-|
D|------------------------14----------------|
A|-----7-----9--5---------------------------|
E|------------------5---8-------------------|

And thats it. I haven’t figured out the bizzare time signature(s?), but if I do I will 
Other than that, this tab is complete.
