                      PARTY AT GROUND ZERO - Fishbone
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: James
Email: kamapuaa@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard

Ok, after working on this for a while, I can see why there aren't many Fishbone
tabs. I've tried here to outline the major sections of the song, most of the
non-solo riffs, and some of the general structure, but some of the timing and
changes are a little tricky.

Opening Riff:

------10-12-10-----------------------------------------|
---------------12-12-12-10-12-13-12-12-10-12-----------|
---------------------------------------------12-11-7-9-|
-------------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------------|

The ska chopping for the intro goes back and forth from Am to G.

So, Intro riff, Am-G, Intro riff again, Am-G chopping then:

(3x)
----------------------------------|
----------------------------------|
----------------------------------|
-9-9-9-10-10-10-12-12-12-10-10-10-|
-7-7-7-8--8--8--10-10-10-8--8--8--|
----------------------------------|

-------|
-------|
-------|
-9-7-9-|
-7-5-7-|
-------|

Next, hang on Am, then Am-G# and into the main chopping riff, which is I-IV-V in
G#: G#-C#-D#.

Party at ground zero
A B-movie starring you
And the world will turn to flowing pink vapor stew

The next change in the guitar part is when he follows the vocal line:

Please do not fear, cause Fishbone is here to say (say what?)
-------------------------|
-------------------------|
-------------------------|
---6-3-----3-6-3-------3-|
-------6---------6---6---|
---------4---------4-----|

Just have a good time, the bad time is far away...
-------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------|
---3-6-3-----3-6-3-------3-3-4-3-4-3-|
---------6---------6---6-------------|
-----------4---------4---------------|

The toilet has flushed, and green lights are ghosts
-----------------------|
-----------------------|
-----------------------|
---3-6-3-----3-6-3-----|
---------6---------6---|
-----------4---------4-|

and drop-drills will be extinct
-----------------|
-----------------|
-----------------|
---3-6-3-------3-|
---------6---6---|
-----------4-----|

speedracer cloud has come, they know not what they done
---------------------------|
---------------------------|
---------------------------|
---3-4-4-4-3---------------|
-------------6-5-6-6-6-5-3-|

sin has just won, planet Earth is a...
---------------------|
---------------------|
---------------------|
---------------------|
-1-1-----------------|
-----3-1-1-1-1-3-1---|

Hang on G# for the first turn around then it's the main riff again, I-IV-V in G#.

Oops, a little correction here:

---------------------|

-----3-2-2-2-2-3-2---|

Also, there's one more change later on:

Johnny goes to Sally's house to kiss her goodbye
C# G#

her daddy says to spend the night
C# side to -> D# G#

they make love 'till the early morning light
C# G#

for tomorrow Johnny goes to fight!
C# side to -> D#
