About this tab version
This is the whole song, accurate to the Rocksmith version which is was what Jeff Ament actually plays.. The other tabs aren't accurate enough in my opinion,,,. Was this info helpful? Yes No

Pearl Jam - Alive

Album: Ten

Bassist: Jeff Ament

Bass Tab

Tuning - Standard EADG

Play with a either a pick or with fingers.. Who really cares? ;) 

Tabbed by Riptide

Problems? Email: hyprriptide@gmail.com

Symbols list (As Reference): 
h - hammer on 
p - pull off 
b - bend string up
r - release bend
/ - slide up
\ - slide down
v - vibrato (sometimes written as ~)
t - right hand tap
x - play 'note' with heavy damping
() - Harmonic
**** - Hold the note.. idk what the correct tab symbol is but apparently it is normally --- 
which doesn't work here for obvious reasons.

This tab is correct to the Rocksmith Tab which sounds accurate to me! So here we go :) 
The timing of the bass is quite difficult to do without knowing how the bass of this song goes.
So if you haven't already pop on some decent headphones or some good quality speakers and have a listen.. 
It will help!

75 BPM (Strongly advise using a metrenome or drum beat thing for this song xD)

Thank you Thank you :') This is really difficult if you don't know the tune of the song so make sure you do! 

Lyrics:

Son, she said, have I got a little story for you
What you thought was your daddy was nothin' but a...
While you were sittin' home alone at age thirteen
Your real daddy was dyin', sorry you didn't see him, but I'm glad we talked...
Oh I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey, I, I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey...oh...
Oh, she walks slowly, across a young man's room
She said I'm ready...for you
I can't remember anything to this very day
'Cept the look, the look...
Oh, you know where, now I can't see, I just stare...
I, I'm still alive
Hey I, but, I'm still alive
Hey I, boy, I'm still alive
Hey I, I, I, I'm still alive, yeah
Ooh yeah...yeah yeah yeah...oh...oh...
Is something wrong, she said
Well of course there is
You're still alive, she said
Oh, and do I deserve to be
Is that the question
And if so...if so...who answers...who answers...
I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey I, oh, I'm still alive
Hey I, but, I'm still alive
Yeah I, ooh, I'm still alive
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

This is my first tab, i wanted to say at the end so that you didn't pre judge it.. 
if it's bad please tell me what to improve <3
If it's good please rate 5* etc and feel free to drop me an email if there is a bit you are having trouble with 
hyprriptide@gmail.com

See you soon,
Riptide
