Bass TAB: You Learn, Alanis Morissette
Section 1 - Lyrics with riff types (V1, V2, etc.)
Section 2 - Riff type definitions
Section 3 - TAB reference
----------------------------------------------
Section 1: Glen Ballard (Alanis' brother) is on a 4-string
1st verse:
V1        V2                                     V1     V2
I... recommend getting your heart trampled on to anyone
V1        V2                                     V1     V2
I... recommend walking around naked in your living room
T1             T2
Swallow it down (what a jagged little pill)
T1             T2
It feels so good (swimming in your stomach)
T1             T3
Wait until the dust settles

Chorus:
C1                 C2
You live, you learn; you love, you learn
C3                 C4
You cry, you learn; you lose, you learn
C1                 C2                 C3   C4
You bleed, you learn; you scream, you learn

2nd verse:
V1        V2                                        V1 
I... recommend biting off more than you can chew to anyone
V2
I certainly do
V1        V2                                       V1
I... recommend sticking your foot in your mouth at any time
V2
Feel free
T1       T2
Throw it down (the caution blocks you from the wind)
T1        T2
Hold it up (to the rays)
T1           T3
You wait and see when the smoke clears

--chorus--

--Break--
X1-6 times  X2-measures

3rd verse (2nd part):
T1      T2
Wear it out (the way a three-year-old would do)
T1      T2
Melt it down (you're gonna have to eventually anyway)
T1       T3
The fire trucks are coming up around the bend

--chorus--

Added to chorus, same riffs:
You grieve, you learn; you choke, you learn
You laugh, you learn; you choose, you learn
You pray, you learn; you ask, you learn
You live, you learn...

JOHN'S ASCII BASS TABS
Some Slap, Pop, Tap, Funk Conventions:
-  h7=hammer 7th fret w/left hand
-  H13=hammer 13th fret w/right hand (arpeggio)
-  p6=pull off 6th fret w/left hand
-  P9=Pluck (pull hard and let go - right hand) 9th fret
-  S5=Slap (hit string with right thumb) 5th fret
-  X=Pop (hit all strings w/left hand) sounds like bass drum
     simply providing a beat reference.
-  /3=slide from previous fret down to 3rd fret
-  \9=slide from previous fret up to 9th fret
"+" and "." represent rhythm above the tab
|+ . + . + . + . |+ . + . + . + . |
this is two measures, four beats
