Plankton - Buckethead

Transcribed by: Erik Poapst
Email: ramthemouton@hotmail.com

Tuning: 1/2 a step down

This was tabbed totally by ear so if you think there's anything weird about
it or if you think something might need changing, feel free to email me your
thoughts or suggestions. It's also my first tab so go easy on me :P. I've
also divided the song in parts so it would be easier to follow. Lemme know
what you think!

^ = bend
p = pull-off
h = hammer-on
s = slide

I also put the notes which you can kinda hear resonate in brackets "()".


Alright here's the intro I managed to pick up.

e|---12-(12)--------------------------|
B|-------12-------------- 15-13-------|
G|-------------(14)---14-(14)---12----|
D|----------14--14--------------------|  
A|------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------|


----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok Here's the next part:

||-----------------------------------|
||-----------------------------------|
||-----------5------5-7-5--4-5-4-----|
||--------------------------------5--|  Repeat x8 clean (Palm mute)
||-----7-5-7-------------------------|
||--0-----------0-0------------------|

Same thing except this time add distortion:

||-----------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
||-----------------------------------|-----------------------------------|
||-----------5------5-7-5--4-5-4-----|-----------5------5-7-5--4-5-4-----|
||--------------------------------5--|--------------------------------5--|

|--0-----------0-0------------------|----3----|


----------------------------------------------------------------------------


||-------------------|-------------------|
||---------------12--|--12h13-12---------|
||--12h14-12--11-----|------------11-12--|
||-------------------|-------------------|  Repeat x6 clean
||-------------------|-------------------|
||-------------------|-------------------|

While this is playing, the melody in the background goes something like
this; I had alot of trouble with it but ya here's what I managed to come
up with:

||--------0----------------||--------0----------------|
||----------0--------------||----------0--------------|
||---------------0---------||---------------0---------|
||----2-------------4-2----||----2-------------4-2----|
