About this tab version
Attemps to incorporate time values in addition to standard tablature note values - important for this song. Was this info helpful? Yes No
** Big Corrections from watching/listening closer to this song **

This song consists of two, 4-bar baselines that are arranged to make up the most of the track.  There
are a couple of sections where everyone vamps on E to fill in the rest of the song.

The time signature of the song is 4/4 with quarter notes at about 183 bpm.
The drummer plays a half-time groove (snare on the 3) for most of the song, but he plays snare
on 2 and 4 in a couple of driving sections.

I've tried to denote time below.  the legend above each bar shows quarter notes as the numbers 1 through 4 
and the eighth notes in between are denoted with '&'.  On the tab itself, each character (dash, number,
letter) occupies a 16th note in time.  The exception to this are the bar lines - they are extra to show 
the 4/4 boundaries.  All of the notes are on 8th note boundaries, but I could not figure out a way to 
implement known techniques for showing time values (eg. the first note in LINE 1 is a half note, the
next two notes are dotted quarter notes, etc...)

Here is the first bassline:

LINE 1 Option 1: Opening riff (Intro/Verse?)

  1-&-2-&-3-&-4-&- 1-&-2-&-3-&-4-&- 1-&-2-&-3-&-4-&- 1-&-2-&-3-&-4-&-

First bassline may also be played like this

LINE 1 Option 2: Opening riff (Intro/Verse?)

  1-&-2-&-3-&-4-&- 1-&-2-&-3-&-4-&- 1-&-2-&-3-&-4-&- 1-&-2-&-3-&-4-&-

The second baseline sounds like its in an odd time, but its 4/4.
Here it is:

LINE 2: Jam riff (Chorus?)

  1-&-2-&-3-&-4-&- 1-&-2-&-3-&-4-&- 1-&-2-&-3-&-4-&- 1-&-2-&-3-&-4-&-

When you listen to this song, LINE 2 is made up of three distinct groupings of 9 notes each.  The tablature 
with these three groupings would look like what is below, but it's harder to understand the rhythm in the 
context of the whole song when it's tabbed like this (for me, anyway):

LINE 2: Jam riff (Chorus?)

  1-&-2-&-3-&-4-&-1-&- 2-&-3-&-4-&-1-&-2-&- 3-&-4-&-1-&-2-&-3-&-4-&-

So the overall song construction is:

8 x LINE 1 (first 4 with ride cymbal only, second 4 with drums)
4 x LINE 2
4 x LINE 1
4 x LINE 2
2 x LINE 2 (Solo with some distortion)
4 x LINE 2 (rocking now!)
4 x LINE 1 (first 2 and 4 section for drums)
4 x LINE 2 (drums back to half time groove)
Vamp on E for 32 bars (drums on hi-hat/ride for 16, full drums snare on 2&4 for last 16)
12 x LINE 2 (building with each successive group of 4, drums still driving snare on 2&4)
Vamp on E for 8 bars - end song on the 4 of the 8th bar


| h   Hammer-on
| p   Pull-off

Only been playing for a few months and this is defitely the next step in upping my bass playing, though it's a tad challenging to play at this pace, especially the opening riff, it's an awesome song and great fun to be getting the hang of!
