Song: Electric Uncle Sam
Atrist: Primus - Les Claypool
Tabbed By: Matt Estlea


Intro: Part 1
In this Les uses the double thumb technique in order to achieve
this sound. You can use a pick but it doesn't look as impressive.

G:----------------------------------|
D:-7-6-5--7-6-5--7-6-5--7-6-5-------|      X4
A:----------------------------------|
E:----------------------------------|

Intro: Part 2
Use the back of your nails in order to strum all four strings.
If you have no nails (much like myself) just slap the A string
with your thumb vertically and hit as many strings as possible.

Play the above 4 times except miss out the last part of the 2nd bar on the
