About this tab version
Good start to learn how to play Candy and a good introduction to playing Morphine in general. Was this info helpful? Yes No
So, to begin, if I'm correct, Mark always played with two strings, the D and G bass 
strings, and he put them
in the A and D spots on his bass, and he supposedly always played in the key of D when 
it came to Morphine,
meaning that you should only use the D and G strings, and you should tune them to D and A.

I've found that playing on a guitar almost sounds the same, just tuning it to open D, 
and only playing the
E and A strings, unless you want to experiment, then by all means, use the other strings.

[Intro and Verse]

I give credit for the correct Chorus and Sax Solo to JAStewart.

Of course, the entire song isn't just this "picking pattern", a lot of it's just improvised,
but this should get you started on this song at the very least. I only made this because the
other tabs weren't that helpful. One guy only used theD string, the other had the wrong tuning
and probably the wrong strings.

Yep this is accurate. Here's the rest of it too:

......Candy says she made arrangements, for me in the sand
A--1----------1------1--0--------0--------0--1----1--3---------
D--1----------1------1--0--------0--------0--1----1--3---------

Sax solo:
A--8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-|-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-|
D--8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-|-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-|

A--6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|
D--6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|

That twice, then:

A--1-1-1-1-5-5-5-5-|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|
D--1-1-1-1-5-5-5-5-|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|

A--1-1-1-1-5-5-5-5-|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|
D--1-1-1-1-5-5-5-5-|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|

Back to main riff.
