Ben Folds - Bastard - Bass Tab
From the album 'Songs For Silverman'

Hopefully by using this and listening along you can work out timings etc.

Standard Tuning

INTRO:

G|-12-11-9-7------------|
D|-----------9-7-5------|
A|-----------------9-7--|
E|----------------------|

VERSE:

The old bastard left his ties and his suit...

G|-7h9-9-9-9-7-7-----------------------5-5-5-5-5-7---|
D|---------------5-5-5-5-5-5----5-5---5--------------|
A|---------------------------5-5---5-5---------------|  x2
E|---------------------------------------------------|

He gets smaller while the world gets big...

G|--------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------|
A|-0-0-00-2-3-3--3--0-0-00-2-3-3/15-15\-|
E|--------------------------------------|

So why you gotta act like you know when you don't know...

G|--------------------2-5-2---2-4-5--(7--|only first time)
D|-5-4-2--------2-5-5--------------------|
A|--------5-3--5-------------------------|   x2
E|---------------------------------------|

END:

Alternate between the two -

1)
G|------2-----|
D|-5-4-5------|
A|--------2-3-|
E|------------|

2)
G|-2-0-2-3-4-5-|
D|-------------|
A|-------------|
E|-------------|

And that's it!
