			     Agadez (Bass tab) - The Mars Volta
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed By : Wallnut


Tuning:EADG
First off, I realize that most of the second half of my tab is hard to understand, but i 
tried to use symbols instead of writing "32 dotted"
in the rhythm section. If anyone has any better way of writing it, please leave a comment
(or if anyone has a better idea of that time signature)
At the end of the day, its Mars Volta, so you should expect complicated!

(Rhythm is shown at the top of each stave.)
(R = Rest)

Well done! Quite a bit easier to play that I was expecting too... If only Day Of The Baphomets was this easy...
