Captain Beefheart — My Human Gets Me Blues bass tabs

This tab consists of a number of ridiculously complicated basslines. I cannot stress
this enough (with all of my tabs, but especially this one), DO NOT ATTEMPT TO PLAY
WITHOUT
HEARING THE RECORD FIRST!

(standard tuning)

FIG 1 (intro)

G———————————————————
D———————————————————
A——————13———13——————
E———3———13——————————

FIG. 2 (“I saw yuh baby dancing…”)

G————————————————————————————————————
D————————————————————————————————————
A————————————————————————————————————
E———0—20—0—20—0—0—20—0—0—20——————————

This is played until about a 1:05, when it switches to a screwed—up walking line.

FIG. 3 (“they way you were dancing…”

G——————————4—3—————————————————
D—————3—6——————6—4—3———————————
A———4——————————————————6—4—————
E——————————————————————————————

And about 1:23, it changes again, to this.

FIG. 4 (“well the way you been old lady…”)

G——————5————————————
D———————————————————
A———3————3—4—3——————
E———————————————————

And then the bass drops out, eventually coming back around 1:42.

FIG. 5 (“you were afraid you would be the devil’s red wife…”)

G————————————————————1————
D—————4——————4—1—4————————
A———2———2—2———————————————
E—————————————————————————

FIG. 6 (“dressed you the way he wants…”)

G———0—LET RING—0—LET RING—0—LET RING—0—LET RING—
D————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
A————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
E————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

G———0—LET RING—0—LET RING—0—LET RING—0—LET RING———
D——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
A——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
E——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

The next line is a breakdown that is played really fast, so please listen to the
record
for the timing and all.

FIG. 7

G————————————————————————
D————————————————————————
A—————4————4———2———2—————
E———2———2———2———2————————

Please appreciate the tab, it took a long time.
