"My Interpretation of Les Claypool's bassline to _Fish_On_ from the album
_Sailing_The_Seas_of_Cheese_" --R.AllenCanterbury

To play this so it sounds close to the song on the CD, I like to tune my
E string down to B.  Les does this song on a 6-string fretless I think...
And uses the high C and low B strings in the song.  You can do without the
C (just play the G higher up) but the B needs to be there cuz it sorta adds
a low rumble towards the end of the song.  Les sounds harmonics or does sharp
fingernail taps of strinsg from time to time which I can't pin down.
