******************************[DISCLAIMER]**************************************|
As you all know, the bass parts are somewhat hard to decipher so,               |
Use your best judgement when playing this song. I know I fucked the chorus part |
Because of the picking being used. I just can't hear what the hell he's doing!  |
If you can make it out... hell, you let ME know!                                |

 Although this part has the higher-registered Chapman Stick licks in it,
 I wont transcribe it because it can only be done using a 6 string which I dont have.
 It can also be done on the guitar but, I'll just have to send that part to a 
 Guitar-Tab site.

 (this part is picked somewhat lightly)

Back to "Intro Theme"


***********************************************************************************|
Here's a little treat for you Bass players who actually have the balls to take the |
forefront. You'll need a 24 fret neck to do this or a 6 string bass.               |
I use a Yamaha TRB-4 24 fretter. Stuff like this is always fun at the music store. |
This is the acoustic guitar intro transposed to bass using the two-hand technique. |
Remember: this intro piece is mostly all right hand technique.                     |
The two-hand technique is made up of all hammer-on's and pull-off's.               |
Have fun and don't loose any hair trying this. It's all about fun baby!  [ PT ]    |

This was all blood-sweat-tears from the ears baby! I'll be tabbing out a lot of 
TOOL basslines pretty soon.
