Song: IDIOT BOX
Artist: Incubus
Album: S.C.I.E.N.C.E.
Tabbed by: Jay LeBrun (nor'easterbass)
Tuning: Drop D (low to high: D-A-D-G)

There are alot of notes on here because I either got a little lazy
or stuff just had to be explained, but I felt the tabs up here
did no justice to how Dirk Lance actually played this song.
So here you are, a much more accurate bass tab for Idiot Box.
Enjoy.

Ending Notes: I think I may have missed a couple fills in the "Funky Interlude". 
If I get around to it I'll add them, but I'm real busy so if anyone else wants to 
go ahead and tab them out, be my guest. OK that's it. Rate and comment, suckas!
