SONG:   Soft Rock Star
BAND:   Metric
ALBUM:  Grow Up and Blow Away
YEAR:   2007 (released); 2001 (recorded)
TRACK:  6
TUNING: GDAE


This is a very spontaneous, jazzy form of bass playing, so the strumming marker ( > ) pretty
much never means steady, consistent strumming. The bassist uses a very varied speed and rhythm
to his playing, so listen closely to the recording and just improvise.

  Not a lot of room to move
  But where is my guide?
  I tried looking up to you girls
  Please correct me, but
  Didn't you let the work slide?
