Artist: Alien Ant Farm
Album: TruANT
Song: Quiet
Bassist: Tye Zamora
Bass: 5/6 string
Tuning: Standard BEADG

Description: This song is really fun to play. I tabbed it with about 98% confidence level to the 
   studio CD version. I couldn't find any videos of Tye playing this live, but I believe it is very 
   very close to 100%. Note that the lyrics don't line up perfectly with the notes, I was just trying 
   to let you know where it is in the song. In general, the first word will somewhat line up to the 
   bass part. For the muted notes, I used an x on the string where I think he's 
playing it. You don't have
   to play it exactly as written, just listen for the muted notes and play as necessary. Note that
   the bass part is fairly hard to hear in spots during the chorus but I actually applied bandpass
   filtering to the song to bring out the bass part and this is the best approximation of what I
   could hear. It will sound good when you play it and I believe it is accurate.

   Also, I tabbed this out in 5 string, and he does use the low B in this song. 
Tye plays a custom Fender 6 string.
   You could probably get away with playing a 4 string in Drop D, but you will 
still lose a couple of notes
   in the song, and it may make some passages difficult. I recommend a 5 or 6 string for this song.
