	Okay, Les uses a lot of different little things during this one.  For
the intro, try doing it with three fingers, or two, as fast as you can.
The volume isn't too high, so you don't have to pluck them too fast.  For the
slapping part of the intro, I'm not sure what he does.  He either does that,
or strummed.  He might use some effect pedal, I don't know.

FRIZZLE FRY  from Frizzle Fry (updated 5/15/95)
-----------

Listening to the CD, I've noticed some chorusing, so if you have a bass
chorus pedal, power it up.

note: Ram Samudrala at ram@elan1.carb.nist.gov did the original posting of
this song, from which I reprint this interlude riff:  

Intro
G------------|
D-6----------|  do this a couple times and then move the whole
A--667h6p-6-6|  riff up a minor third (start on the 4th fret on the  
E--------8-7-|  D-string)

I suggest playing it starting on the G-string, You can get a better sound
that way.  Like this:

G-|-1--------------------|-
D-|---1-1-2h-1p---1---1--|-
A-|-------------3---2----|- 
E-|----------------------|-

Here's the way I think the rest of it sould go:

P = pop    
p = pull off
V = downstroke strum

Intro
		         V
G-|----------------------7--|-
D-|--7P-0p-0P-----0P-7h--0--|-
A-|-------------------------|-
E-|-------------------------|-


Main riff
                      V                       V
G-|-------------------8---|-------------------7----|-
D-|--0P-7P-0p-0P---0P-8---|--0P-7P-0p-0P---0P-7----|-
A-|-------------------6---|-------------------5----|-
E-|-----------------------|------------------------|-

                      V                       V   V
G-|-------------------8---|-------------------5---7----|-
D-|--0P-7P-0p-0P---0P-8---|--0P-7P-0p-0P---0P-5---7----|-
A-|-------------------6---|-------------------3---5----|-
E-|-----------------------|----------------------------|-

That's most of it.  I haven't been able to make out the break section at
2:41, there's something for me to work at.
