Flaming Lips
Pompeii Am Gotterdammerung - Bass tab
tabbed by Adam D (adam (dot) dullenty (at) google's famous email service (dot) com)
-------------------------------------
Alright guys, I'm a guitar and synth player mostly but do enjoy a good bass
riff every now and again. This is one of my favourite songs of all time and
I've been dying to find a bass tab for ages now. Finally gave up waiting,
borrowed a friend's bass and tried to figure it out myself. It's a tricky
one to figure out, it seems that there's been some delay effect used causing
some of the notes to merge together or there's been some overdubbing going
on in the studio - either way it is tricky in places to tell what is
happening.

Here's my attempt, please bear in mind if it's buggy that I'm not a native
bass player, but feel free to suggest corrections :)

(notes from now on are mostly repeatedly plucked til the next note - I've
only noted the first one in each for simplicity, but if you listen to the
song to get the rhythm, it'll make sense)

I've been waiting for someone to do this tab and you did an awesome job. It's definitely easy to play around with. you did an awesome job getting a basic structure for the song. Well done!
