Song Title: Heroes and Villains
Artist: Beach Boys
Written by: Brian Wilson/Van Dyke Parks
Transcribed by: Andrew Bee

Note: This song is another fine example of Brian Wilson's creative mind.
Here is a rough idea of the bass work. It seems fairly simple, and probabley
should be played on a 5—string bass, but here it is arranged on a 4—string.

Repeat this pattern again for Verse II: "Once at night...". End the second
last bar simply on "a——4——".

CHORUS:
Note: Allow note to sustain over the whole 4 bars.

VERSE III: Repeat Verse tab for "La La La...la", and "Shall be Peace in the
Valley" section. After this the BASS drops out and there is the vocal
exercise.

BRIDGE I: Doesn't sound like there's any bass, but try this anyhow — I like
it. Tempo slows down, assume to half the speed of Verse.

BRIDGE II: "I've been in this town". No Bass.

CHORUS: Repeat Chorus pattern, till fade out.

There you have it! I think it gives a basic idea of the song. Any problems,
