Song: David Bowie

Artist: Phish

Album: Junta

This is one of my favorite Phish basslines.  Definitely

funky.  This is only the structured part of the song.  The

rhythm isn't that hard to figure out if you have a




X=muted slap

Main Line:

G   --------4h6-----2-----4--------4h6-----2---4--

  o         P       P     P         P      P   P   o

D   ----------------------------------------------

A   --2/4-4------------------2/4-4-----------X----

  o   T   T                  T   T           T     o

E   ------------3h5---5h7--------------3h5--------

                T     T                T

This is played four times before the walk-up part.  I add

the muted slap for a little variety, but you could keep

repeating the first half of the pattern if you want to.


G   ----------------6h7h9--

D   --------------7--------

A   ----4h5h7--------------

E   --5--------------------

After the walk-up is played, the whole thing is repeated and

the second time around it goes into a jam.  After the jam is

over, it comes back to the original pattern, except

everything moves up 3 frets (including the walk-up).

Note: this is my first time putting tab on the net, and I

would appreciate any feedback.  If you find this useful,

please let me know.  I will post more Phish basstabs if I

get a positive response.

Yea, this tab is right on. I find it plays better if its 0h2 on the A string rather than 5h7 tho.
