                             "Not For You"
                     from "Vitalogy" by Pearl Jam
                        Tabbed by: Jeff Szymona


This is my first attempt at bass tabbing..."Not For You" is a relatively
easy song, and you should be able to pick out everything here with a
listen...

The skeleton of the verse part goes like this:
G:-----------------
D:-----------------
A:--7-7-7-7-7-4-5--
E:-----------------

Examples of some variations you can try:
G:----||-------------------------------||
D:----||-------------------------------||
A:--7-||-7-7-7-7-4-5---5-5-5-5-5-5-5/7-||
E:----||-------------------------------||

G:------------------------------
D:------------------------------
A:--7-7-7-7-7-4-5---------5-5-4-
E:------------------------------
Or, just try anything that feels good!


For the last line of verse, there's a twist that blends into the chorus:
G:---------------------------------------------------------------
D:---------------------------------------------------------------
A:--7-7-7-7-7-4-5---5-5-5-5-5-5-4-2-2-2-2-2-4--------------------
E:--------------------------------------------3--3-3--3-3-2-(0)--

(CHORUS)
G:--------------------------------------------
D:--------------------------------------------
A:--(4)/7--7--7-7--(7)/2--2-2--2-2------------
E:----------------------------------3-2-(0)---
Again, feel free to change the exact way you play this line...I took a
sort of liberty with the end of the line, and the beginning slide...I'm
not completely sure Jeff Ament does that in the song, but it sounds good
when playing it.


The "My friends they don't..." part, just do this:
G:------------------------------------------------------------------
D:------------------------------------------------------------------
A:------------------------------------------------------------------
E:--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-
And repeat


For the "All that's sacred..." part, try this:
G:-||-------------------------------||-----
D:-||------------------2------------||-----
A:-||-2-4-2---------------2---------||-4-5-
E:-||-------4-2-0-----------4-2-0---||-----
          (Do this 2 times)

And then back to the verse riff


Then as the song gets all hectic, it's mostly the chorus, but it goes
back to the verse riff at the very end before everything else becomes
chaos...

For the subtle fadeout, the beginning, at least, goes like this:
G:--------------------------------------------
D:--------------------------------------------
A:-7-----9h10-12----15-14-12-10---9h10p9/7-5--
E:--------------------------------------------
Then it gets hairy...This is close:
G:---------------------------------------------------------------
D:---------------------------------------------------------------
A:--10--9--7---9-5--7-3--5-2--3-0-----3-----2h3--5-3-------------
E:---------------------------------------------------5---h3--0---

Well, that's it.  I just worked out a few things quickly and without my
amp, so my ears may have lied to me somewhere...please feel free to mail
