Jerk Off ~ Opiate

This bass tab was taken off 2 live video bootlegs that I have. It IS correct. If you 
any doubt about playing the correct notes see Paul, he played it. The song is pretty 
forward altough i think my format leaves a lot to be desired. It is played with a bass pick in Dropped-D.
If you want to buy or trade for videos I have e-mail me, most can be used for
tabbing.


Intro
G-----------10/--------------12/------------|
D-------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------|
D-----12-----------12-----------------------|

Paul changes this intro every time he plays it


First Riff
G------------------------------------------|
D------------------------------------------|
A-------7-----8--7-----7-----8^7-----------|
D----7-----7--------7-----7-------8--------|

Simple riff. You can bar the A and D strings with your index finger and use the
middle finger for the 8s. The pull-off is important. Play it four times then
lead into second riff.....


Second Riff
G-----------------------------------------|
D-----------------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------------|
D----7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-8--------------|

Hit it with the flat of the pick for a great sound. Play it twice and slide down
to 12 fret to connect up to third riff....


Third Riff
G-------------------------------------------------|
D-------------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------------|
D---12--0--0--12--0--12--0--12---2/3--------------|

After the last 12 you have to flow into the 2/3 otherwise it sounds shit.
Sliding up the neck and back down works.


Breakdown
G------------------------------------------------------|
D------------------------------------------------------|
A------------------------------------------------------|
D---555555555555555/8888/3333/555555555555etc----------|

Tremelo picking on the D string. Just follow the pattern 5, 8, 3, 5, .....


Fourth Riff
G-------------------------------------------|
D-------------------------------------------|
A-------------------------------------------|
D----5--0--5--0--5--0--8--0--3--3--3--3-----|

Self explantory. Play hard. Play four times. Slide to connect to next riff.

****At this stage go back to the first riff and play everything all the way
through again......
When youíre back here again, onto Fifth riff......

Fifth Riff
G-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D-------------------------------------------2-----3--2-----2-----3^2----|
A-------7-----8--7-----7-----8^7----------------------------------------|
D----7-----7--------7-----7-------8---2-----2---------2-----2-------3---|

G-----------------------------------------------------------------|
D-----------------------------------------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------------------------------------|
D----3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-4-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-4-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-6--|

G-------------------------------------------------------|
D-------------------------------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------------------1---3---|
D----5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-6-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--------------|

You get the hang of the timing. The last note (3) leads onto the next chords.


Sixth Riff
G----5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-8-8-8-8-8-7-----|
D----5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-5-5-5-5-5-7-----|
A----3-3-3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5-5-5-6-6-6-6-6-5-----|
D--------------------------------------------|

Just down stroke chords. Repeat till the end of section. Last time thru you
finish before 6.5.8 chord.

****Play Fourth Riff FOUR times then lead to Seventh Riff

Seventh Riff
G-----------------------------------|
D-----------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------|
D----5--8--3--0--3/5-5/8------------|

It looks easy but its a hard riff to get right. Play 8 times.

****Play Fourth Riff FOUR times. Then end riff.

End Riff
G----------------------------------------|
D----------------------------------------|
A----------------------------------------|
D----5--0--5--0--5--0--5--5--5-----------|
