THE WHITE STRIPES
ELEPHANT

Full Album Bass Tab
====================================================
1.  Seven Nation Army (standard and actual tuning)
2.  Black Math
3.  Theres No Home For You Here
4.  I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself
5.  In The Cold, Cold Night
6.  I Want To Be The Boy To Warm Your Mother's Heart
7.  You've Got Her In Your Pocket
8.  Ball And Biscuit
9.  The Hardest Button To Button
10. Little Acorns
11. Hypnotize
12. The Air Near My Fingers
13. Girl, You Have No Faith In Medicine
14. It's True That We Love One Another

Note: Seeing as though The White Stripes dont have a
      bassist, not all songs have bass in it, like the
      acoustic ones and such.
Note: Actual tuning of Seven Nation Army is in slide
      tuning (E A E A C# E) so I've tabbed the bass
      for that tuning - the way Jack White plays it
      on guitar, even though it is'nt very different.

If you actually listen for once in your life you would here that in Seven Nation Army for a large percent of the song Jack White actually plays bass. He also plays guitar though too. He just switches instruments.
