Song: Turn It Out
Artist: Death From Above 1979
Album: You're A Woman,I'm A Machine
Tuning: DGCF
Tabs Author: doublerre

These tabs' purpose is to recreate the original song as better as possible.

\ = scratch the pick    / = slide

The very first notes of this song are made by piano. You can play it on your bass in a similar way:

F||--------------------------------------------||
C||--------------------------------------------||
G||----5----5----5----5----8----8----8----8----||
D||--------------------------------------------||

Then comes the intro.
It is not simply to get exaclty the same sound of the real intro. You can play it in a similar way
by scratching the pick up and down 4 times on the G string (A string with standard tuning) at first,
then 5 times on the C string (D string with standard tuning) , like this:

F||-------------------------------------------------||
C||-------0-0-0-\\\\\-0-0-0-\\\\\-0-0-0-\\\\\-0-0-0-||
G||--\\\\-------------------------------------------||
D||-------------------------------------------------||

F||-------------------------------------------------------||
C||-\\\\\-0-0-0-\\\\\-0-0-0-\\\\\-0-0-0-\\\\\-0-0-0-\\\\\-||
G||-------------------------------------------------------||
D||-------------------------------------------------------||

Then, the main verse:

F||----------10-10-10-----------9-9-9-----------7-7-7-----------7-7-7-||
C||--0-0-0--------------0-0-0-----------0-0-0-----------0-0-0---------||   x4
G||-------------------------------------------------------------------||

F||----------10-12-10-----------9-10-9-----------7-9-7-----------7-9-7-||
C||--0-0-0--------------0-0-0------------0-0-0-----------0-0-0---------||  x4
G||--------------------------------------------------------------------||
D||--------------------------------------------------------------------||

The chorus:

F||--0-9-10-12-0-9-10-12-0-9-10-12-0-9-10-12-0-9-10-12-0-9-10-12-0-9-10-12-0-9-10-||
C||-------------------------------------------------------------------------------||
G||-------------------------------------------------------------------------------||
D||-------------------------------------------------------------------------------||

Then, repeat the first verse in this way:

F||----------10-10-10-----------9-9-9-----------7-7-7-----------7-7-7-||
C||--0-0-0--------------0-0-0-----------0-0-0-----------0-0-0---------||   x2
G||-------------------------------------------------------------------||
D||-------------------------------------------------------------------||

F||----------10-12-10-----------9-10-9-----------7-9-7-----------7-9-7-||
C||--0-0-0--------------0-0-0------------0-0-0-----------0-0-0---------||  x4
G||--------------------------------------------------------------------||
D||--------------------------------------------------------------------||

C||---------------------------------------------------------------------------------||
G||---------------------------------------------------------------------------------||
D||---------------------------------------------------------------------------------||

F||---------------------------------------------------------------------------------||
C||-0-9-10-12-0-9-10-12-0-9-10-12-0-9-10-12-0-9-10-12-0-9-10-12-0-9-10-12-0-9-10-12-||
G||---------------------------------------------------------------------------------||
D||---------------------------------------------------------------------------------||

F||-0-9-10-12-0-9-10-12-0-9-10-12-0-9-10-12-0-9-10-12-0-9-10-12-0-9-10-12-17-17-17-17-17-17-||
