       Tapped Harmonics......

Having seen the band Tuesday night, I just had to finish off this  
transcription, and post it. The albumn is full of really forward  
bass parts like this, so I may tackle some more in the future. The  
up front sound makes them pretty easy to transcribe.

1)	 Enough's been written about Billy's tone/amp set up, but  
it does make it easier to get the long sustained bends of the intro,  
and solo. The attitude bass also has a scalloped fretboard for some  
of the top notes, again aiding these lines. When bending notes, the  
notes should be fretted with the third finger, but the force to  
bend the notes should come as much as possible from the first and  
second fingers which "support" the bend (be carefull - you can  
injure yourself on these bends if your not warmed up. Don't over do  
it. Stop if it hurts!).

2)	The second part of the intro is the really cool part. I  
checked Billy playing this, and this is pretty close to how he plays  
it - its NOT tapped, though I figured it would be.

3)	The Verse and Chorus are really simple, though the verse  
riff is pretty cool.

4)	The notation is a bit tricky in to solo. I've included time  
info, as its difficult to play along with, until you've broken it  
down into small bits. I've notated bends with "^" and "v".  The  
fretted note is shown first, then the target notes are shown in  
brackets. The "19" deliberatly has no time allocated to it - bend  
straigh up to the "21".

5)	I've marked the final notes as tapped harmonics, but I'm  
not sure these are correct. They're definatly F harmonics, but  
playing them this way fails to get the sound thats on the album.  
This can probably be (again) attributed to Billy's distorted tone.

6)	Following this section there's an acappella chorus, and  
then repeated choruses to fade.

If you enjoy this transcrition, and would like to see more tab on  
the net, then
                       SIT DOWN AND WRITE SOME!
