Too Much

As played by Dave Mattews Band on 'Crash'

Transcribed at 11:23pm, October 31, 1997 by Cody Rahn

(Elaboration is welcome)

\=slide up to/from
/slide down to/from
h=hammer
p=pulloff
X=dead note 
(?)=Last sounding of this note held through here.

This is a good song to play just for grooving, especially with buddies
since it's not too complicated, and fairly easy to put together. This
is about as easy as Stefans bass lines get, IMO. The man just grooves.
Given the date I'm doing this, I ought to be tabbing Halloween.....

Ok, enough ranting. The intro.

Ok. Now, the verse riff. Again, infinite variations. I'll just write 
enough of them to get you through the first verse, and you can just
repeat them. That's what I do, because there are just too many.
These particular variations are played in the beginning before lyrics
come in.

  Straight in..... 



This riff is repeated, slightly varied, until the intro riff is played 
again. The third important riff in the song is the bridge riff with the
cajun-sounding voilin stuff.

And back into the verse riff. Quite a groovin' song!

BTW, this song is played on a 6-string, but I arranged it for a four string
since there were no discernable lower-than-E notes.
