* THE BLOAT for the BASS 
* by the Melvins
* from the album "Stag"
* music by Buzz Osbourne and Mark Deutrom
* tabbed by grumpydevil
XX===============================XX

h = hammer-on
p = pull-off
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
~ = let ring


This song was recorded with all guitars tuned down to D...
I.E - From standard tuning, every string must be tuned 
down a whole step (like they were 2 frets lower). 

First Dale starts ith the drumbs...he solos it for a 
whole 16 seconds.

[INSERT CURRENT BASSIST] and Buzz then join.

Play in this order:

*some slight variation is made here:

Riff A uses small slides from the 9th fret on the "F" 
string and Riff B uses some hammer-ons & pull-offs - 
these are played during the last notes for that set 
(fancy-schmancee, eh?)

Then the abrupt change from the slow groove to thick bass riff 
played throughout the end of the song.

That's it.  I'm pretty sure that's right.  I'll be trying to 
figure out the minimal amount of guitar next. --Kyle
