Tommy the Cat
by Primus
from the CD Sailing The Seas of Cheese
Tabbed by The Great god_of_discord@hotmail
aka Geoff McLeod

I've noticed that nobody has transcribed this very well, 
so I've taken the liberty to do so.

Arranged for a four-string.

T: Thumb Slap
P: Index Pop
S: Downstroke(Strum)
U: Upstroke(Strum)
+: Right Hand Tap

(Technically, you need to drop to B for the next part.
But you can do it with your E. You just have to mute it.)

Lack of accuracy. It is 2 on the D string and 4 on the g string for the Down stroke on each measure
