Gorillaz - Plastic Beach album tab 
by hidde

Note: my tabs are divided into bars with every note tabbed on exactly the right 
timing (which makes it even more easier for you guys to play :D)

Thanks to Govind Sidhu (Welcome to the world of the plastic beach), Holli 
(Rhinestone Eyes, Empire Ants) and UltimateBass123 (Melancholy Hill)



1. Orchestral Intro

no bass



2. Welcome to the World of The Plastic Beach

note: the 7b8 variation of the first note should be a quick and short bend and is 
almost a ghost note.

Pretty lazy album tab compilation, I gotta say...

There are better individual tabs across the website. This is a very lazily done album tab, with songs missing and excuses like 'no way am I gonna do that' - why even bother?
