Ed. note: 1st bass tab - thanks Jaan


Dearest bass players of a.m.m-k, may I have your attention please!
Here's a tab for "Blameless", as I remember it off the top of my head,
without an instrument for any practical transcribing purposes at hand. You
need a 5-string bass for this (plenty of low C's there)... ">" indicates a
slide, too bad I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to emphasise
notes that are longer in time value than others. Oh well, you guys figure
out that easily anyway... You can sneak in additional slides, slips and
other intricate little nuances as you go too . Try it, it's fun! :-)

For the record, I wanted to do "Blameless" first because it's the first
song we played at the rehearsals and therefore has a deeply emotional value
for yours truly. I mean... what a friggin' beautiful song!! Ok, headlong
into the tab:

Is there a proper way in Usenet for notating 1st & 2nd endings?
Actually, is there a proper way in Usenet for notating *anything* at
all?!?!? How do you name sections of a tune which is really one big
conception of beauty in itself? Intro, verse, bridge, outro? Freud, Marx,
Engels, Jung? Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman, Howe? Ahhh, whatever... :-)

Enjoy,
