bass tab
"another song about t.v."
mxpx (magnified plaid)
-pokinatcha-
copyright thirsty river moon publishing (or something like that)

Notice that i am trying to line up notes with syllables
in the parts with words; however, listening to it is still
the best way to get your timing right.

Intro
riff 1
G|--9-8-7---------------------|
D|-------9-8-7-5---7------5---|
A|-7-------------5---5--3---3-|
E|----------------------------|
riff 2
G|--9-8-7----------------------|
D|-------9-8-7-5---7------10---|
A|-7-------------5---5--8----8-|
E|-----------------------------|

Practice these SLOWLY at first, then gradually speed up.

Play:
riff 1, riff 2 (twice)
E (seventh fret, A string)
D (fifth fret, A string)
B (seventh fret, E string)

Verse
Notes are: G# = 4th fret E string
           A  = 5th fret E string
           B  = 7th fret E string
           E  = 7th fret A string

G#      A                   E
another song about how much t.v. sucks
G#          A          B
washes your brain of intelligence
G#       A         E
you sit around all night and day
G#       A               B
was life really meant to be this way??

Chorus
riff c
G|--------------------------|
D|-----------------5--------|
A|-5h7-7-7-5h7-7-7----7--5--|
E|--------------------------|
The timing on this one is debatable.  Just listen and get it
so it sounds good.

riff c
t.v. sucks!
riff c
t.v. sucks!
etc. etc.

Then play:
(long means straight sixteenths, short means short)
G#(long) A(long) E(short)
G#(long) A(long) B(short)

verse dos

G#            A                E
watching your life go down the tube
G#                 A             B
and you wonder why every day's a rerun
G#                A               E
nothing different happens nothing new
G#            A                    B
your life's a show and the show is over


riff c
t.v. sucks!
(etc. etc.)

G#(short) A(short) E(long)
G#(short) A(short) B(long)

verse III

G#         A            E
a waste of time of a created mind
G#               A              B
star trek's been airing far too long
G#               A             E
can you sleep at night without sight and sound?
G#       A              B
whatever happpened to reality?


t.v. sucks! (yet again)

Bridge thingy
G|-------9-7--------------------|
D|----9------9------------------|
A|--7--------------6-6-9-9-6-6--|
E|-------------7-7--------------|

Play that riff four times, then go back to "t.v. sucks!"

Ending:

Thrash about a bit (whilst playing the chorus riff),
scream "t.v. arrgh" and then end on a big ol E.

			FIN

When you are learning the riffs, play them SLOW, then
get faster a little bit at a time.  Otherwise you will
hurt yourself and i will be forced to kick you in the head.

That's that, and apologies to him whom i ousted from RWTC,
i just hadda get this out there.
