Artist: Incubus

Album: Make Yourself

Tabbed By: L.A.



Dirk Lance (The bassist in Incubus) uses a 5 string. I have a 4 string, and

so do most bassists, so I've written this up in 4 string format. There are

parts that would be easier to play on the 5th string, but if you don't mind

going up the fretboard on your G string this is it. The first interlude,

tho, is a little shaky and would be clearer on the 5th string. And I would

include note lengths but I can't really figure them out. And some of the

notes could be played as open notes (i.e. 5th frets) on the next higher

string but intonations are off, so play it this way.



Endings are denoted by #

= means hold note



Riff 1 #1 #2 #3 order: Riff 1 w/ endings #1,

G|------------------------|-----|-4/5--3-|---------| #2, #1, then #3

D|---5-----0h5-4--2-2p1-2-|-----|--------|---------|

#1 #2 #3

G|-12---|--------------------|------3-0-|------------|----0-3-0-|

D|------|*------------------*|-0-0------|------------|-0--------|

A|------|*------1--3-2/5-55-*|2-2-2-----|7p6-3p2p1p0-|2-2-------|

Riff 4 #1 #2

G|---------------|-----------h5---|-------------------|

D|---------------|------22--4---4-|-4-3-2-1-0---------|

A|-------1---3-2-|33-55-----------|-----------3-1-----|

E|-3-1-3---3-----|----------------|---------------3-1-|



Then repeat Riff 3 with ending 3 twice, then Riff 3 with this ending:

G|--7----7--|

D|-7-7--7-7-|

A|----------|

E|----------|

triplets



Then play all of Riff 1, with the endings in the order earlier described.

The very end of the song (after the clapping and "fantastic, fantastic")

sounds like they're rewinding the tape, but I'm not quite sure. It's very

hard to hear nonetheless, so I haven't tabbed it. If in fact you're in dire

straits and utterly utterly need this very end part which I can't hear

anyway, email me and I'll try to tab it for you. That's all.
