About this tab version
This is a complete bass tab of Afterthoughts by Spock's Beard. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Song: Afterthoughts
Artist: Spock's Beard
Album: Brief Nocturnes and Dreamless Sleep

Transcribed by: Sam Fahey (sam.j.fahey@gmail.com)
Last Updated: Nov. 16, 2016

Notes: This whole song is played below the 9th fret with one exception -- there is a lone note
on the 12th fret of the G-string during some verses (e.g. ---12\---). Because of this, I find it
easier to read without hyphens between every note, especially in the faster parts (352 notes per min).
Sorry if this bothers anyone, but it makes for a shorter document, and the timing is consistent throughout.

Tempo: ~176 BPM, two characters per beat throughout song
Technique: Artist plays with pick, transcriber prefers fingers, both are viable
