"Hello Skinny" from Woodstock '94
__________________________________________________
--------------------------------------------------
Origionally by The Residents
Tabbed by Christopher Preston

	Les fit this little diddy in during "Nature Boy" and it's called
"Skinny" on bootlegs.  The words are: 
Skinny was born in a bathtub
And he grew so incredibly thin
Even the end of an eyedropper 
Sucked him in...etc

Tabbed by Christopher Preston

	This song is a variation of two riffs; I'm not sure when each is 
used, but riff 1 is used for the intro.  There is a fill for each riff.

Intro + Riff 1:
|----------------------|
|*---9--9--9-9-10-10--*|
|*---7--7--7-7-8--8---*|
|----------------------|

Riff 1 Fill:

"Is It Luck?" from "Sailing The Seas Of Cheese"
__________________________________________________
--------------------------------------------------
	This song is so fast, I find it hard to figure out if he's playing,
or if he's just hiting strings.  This is what I got, however, from watching
bootleg videos and it sounds right with the CD.  He sometimes slips in the
varient 1.

Main Riff:

Varient 1:

"Jerry Was A Race Car Driver" from "Sailing The Seas Of Cheese"
__________________________________________________
--------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by Christopher Preston
	A lot of basses don't have a 24th fret, and the ones that do, I find
it uncomfertable to play up there.  So, here it is, without the two note  
chords.  It sounds fine even if you don't play the two note chords, btw.
	The "Main Riff" plays for the intro, after "Fire her up, man".  It 
continues for vs. 1-2 then I have it written out.  The "Patting 
Section" is when Les holds all the strings down at ther same 
fret, and uses his right hand in a "patting of sorts"  He pats 
all four strings, but I wrote it like that to give the 
approximate pitch differences.  The main riff variant is used 
sometimes.
	For those of us who want a basic sounding version, check out the easy
version.  If you aren't that good, or you have to sing while plaing, or you
decide to bake lasagne while you're playing, etc. play this if you think it 
sounds good.  Be sure to boost the treble, though.

"John The Fisherman" from "Frizzle Fry"
__________________________________________________
--------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by Jeffrey Swing/Christopher Preston

	Right after the drum intro, Les turns on some tone and crunch filled
distortion (Anybody know what kind of pedal he uses? I think it's his good
'ol ADA $600+ pre amp) and strums all open strings.  With them ringing, he 
uses his whammy bar, which I haven't found a way to duplicate this on a 
non whammy bass, because he uses all four strings to equal decibal 
proportion.

Tweekers", so the bass line is as follows:

Lyrics:
I knew a man named Michael Finnagan,
He had whiskers on his chinnagan,
Rain came up and blew tham in again,
Poor ol' man ol' Michael Finnagan...etc

"Mr. Krinkle" from "Pork Soda"

Tabbed by Christopher Preston
	This one is played on an acoustic stand-up and it doesn't sound 
nearly as good, also because it's bowed.  This should be played with a high
tone, or, play the "High" version, which, I think, sounds closer.
