Artist: Tool
Song: Parabol and Parabola
Album: Lateralus
Year: 2001


Tips on playing correctly:

1) Play w/ a plectrum (.88m or thicker), Justin does, and you will not get the
   click sound you need if you finger pick.
2) If you have a pre-amp on your bass, alternate from high to
   low levels of boost through out the song, you will need to
   listen to the song carefully to find out exactly where.
3) Use your hands to mute the strings after playing some notes,
   it really gets the riff's bouncing.
4) Try to use all of your fingers to get to the notes faster,
   this makes you able to play the riff's much faster.


[Parabol] 
(Intro to Parabola)

This is 100% correct, proven by ear, videos of Tool playing live,
and taken from several covers ^^

Wrong tuning. It's in BEDG. Meaning most of this tab is wrong. Also, my favourite part (2:33 of Parabola) is wrong, which saddens me. Listen closely, there are notes being played before each note you have tabbed out.
