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

The bass guitar remains in the background of the guitar for the first 
half of "Shock," but in the second half its influence starts to come 
out.  Play the first part of the song (Riffs A-E) conservatively; don't 
do anything flashy.  Just let the guitar take over for a while.  Then, 
starting with Riff F, begin to emphasize yourself a little more.  

Your influence will be most felt in Riffs K and L, particularly in this 
line...

Here, emphasize the open D string at the end of the phrase.  That will 
help create the illusion that the guitarist is playing a simple D5 chord 
(see corresponding guitar tab).  Have fun!

Tune all strings down a perfect fifth (A, D, G, C)
