Awesome song. Not too difficult, but can get incredibly confusing with key changes and 
not. Hopefully it'll make sense.

He uses a 5 string bass, but you only need to fifth string for one note in the whole 
so it can be played easily on a four string. I'll just tab it out with the regular 4 
but make a note of where the lower B string is used.

As far as rhythm, each little - is a 16th note, with one extra at the beginning and end 
a bar. I'll put a [tri] below triples (the three notes corresponding to the T, R, and I).


INTRO
Keys/Vocal

"Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends
We're so glad you could attend, come inside, come inside
There behind a glass stands a real blade of grass
Be careful as you pass, move along, move along

Come inside, the show's about to start
Guaranteed to blow your head apart"
