The Guitar (The Lion Sleeps Tonight) - They Might Be Giants
Tabbed by Skooter

This is my first tab on here.
The other tabs for this on here were close, but not quite right, so I wrote this out.
This song is a blast to play on bass and most everyone recognizes the melody.


[Intro]
G|----------------------------| (1 time)
D|-3-3-----3-----3-3------3---|
A|----------------------------|
E|----------------------------|

G|-------------------------------------| (3 times)
D|--------2-4-2---0------0-------------|
A|-0----4-------4----------4-2-4-2-----|

G|-------------------------------------| (8 times)
D|--------2-4-2---0-0----0-------------|
A|-0-0--4-------4----------4-2-4-2-----|
E|-------------------------------------|


[Chorus] ("In the spaceship...")
G|-------------| (2 times)

D|--------2-4-2---0-0----0-------------|
A|-0-0--4-------4----------4-2-4-2-----|
E|-------------------------------------|


The rest of the song just recycles the same riffs for the Chorus and Verses
The only other part is the bridge:

[Bridge]
There's some weird stuff going on with the effects here.
This is the closest I can get with just standard sound

G|---------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------|
E|-0-0-0-0-0h12-12-12-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--|
