			     Anchor Drops – Umphreys McGee
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed By : Greg Eriksen
e-mail: bassmangrooves@yahoo.com

Tuning: Standard

This is the coolest example of a song in 3/4 that I’ve ever heard. There are 
a lot of ghost notes throughout that really help push the groove, especially 
during the solo section. 

It starts with the guitar, and then the bass comes in on the second time.

                                                                      3 times

This part is 2 measures of 5/4 followed by one measure of 4/4.  The whole phrase
Is repeated twice and then there’s an extra 2 beats before they go back to 3/4.

                           Repeat 2 times

Again they go to the two 5/4 measures followed by the 4/4.  Only this time it’s
repeated four times.
                         Repeat 4 times
