***************************Anotherloverholenyohead******************************

by Prince and The Revolution from the album Parade

I.   Performance Notes
        This track, taken from Parade, is played using a "slap & pop" bass
technique.  The A - C - D rhythm figure is doubled by a keyboard.  The figure 
notated in the second Chorus is probably not a bass guitar, but fits well on 
fretboard.  The /*\ indicates sliding the left hand up the fretboard while 
slapping the strings with the thumb of the right.  Listen closely to the recording.
        On the live performance that I've heard, taken from 09-09-86 Tokyo, the
bass part is simplified to the A - C - D rhythm figure.  The "slap and pop"
technique is used very sparingly.

II.  Tablature

 * = an unspecified position on the fretboard
 / = slide finger to next note (left hand)
 s = slap string with thumb
 p = "pop" string with middle (or index) finger
 ^^^^ = (left-hand) vibrato

Really good tab! One of Prince's most funkiest basslines. Thanks, this tab is very helpful for me. I'm trying to learn how to slap. :p
