Here is the complete bass tab to "A Forest" from the album
"Seventeen Sedonds" by the Cure. I worked several hours
straight perfecting it so it's totally accurate. Music by
Robert Smith, Simon Gallup, and Lol Tolhurst. Transcribed by
Caley Barker.


 Rhythm figure 1

Note: The (10)\ part is barely audible the 4th time through.

 Rhythm figure 4

 Rhythm figure 5

 Here's how the structure of the song is with all the rhythm
 figures put together:

 Rhy. fig. 1: 10x
 Rhy. fig. 2:  1x
 Rhy. fig. 1:  8x
 Rhy. fig. 2:  1x
 Rhy. fig. 1:  8x
 Rhy. fig. 2:  1x
 Rhy. fig. 1:  4x
 Rhy. fig. 3:  4x
 Rhy. fig. 4:  7x
 Rhy. fig. 5:  1x

 This is the entire b-tab to "A Forest." The the two C's
 beginning rhythm figure 2 two are kind of subtle and act as
 a change to the chorus. I hope this is one of the most
 thourough and accurate bass tabs you've ever seen. Please
