Dave Matthews Band — Stay (ver 2) bass tabs

Dave Matthews Band — Stay

this is the way i play this song. it may or may not be right but it sounds
very close to the listener supported version. it's a fairly straightforward
tune with little variation. i think it's purpose is to be a good jam to fire
up crowds and such. i have a five string bass and that's what stefan plays
(Modulus Quantum 5) for this song (at least on listener supported) so that's
how i'll tab it. for the notes below low E, i'll include a alternate
fingering in parenthesis for those who don't have a five string.

/ = slide up
= slide down
(x) = alternate fingering with "x" being the fret #.

Intro:
No bass part, except for some quick slide—fills here and there.

Verse — play it very staccato and with a lot of bounce:
G——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
D————————————————————5——————————————5——5—————6—————6———————————
A——————5——6——7——8——————5————————————————————————————————repeat—
E———6—————————————————————————3——3————————4—————4—————4————————
B——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————

Chorus, (very easy):
G——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
D——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
A———(6)—————————————(6)—(6)——(3)—(5)(6)(6)————(6)——————————————
E—————————(1)—(1)(0)———————————————————————(1)————(1)(1)(1)(3)—
B————4————/6———6——5——4———4———1———3——4——4——/6—4——/6——6——6——8——
jump back to verse

Bridge, play VERY bouncy:
G————————3—————3———————————————————————————————————————————————
D———————————2—————2——————————————————————————————————repeat————
A———1——————————————————0——1——2——3—————————6——7——8——————4x——————
E——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
B——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————
back to chorus

o.k. that's it. as i said, very straightforward song. fun to jam to. if you
play this and it sounds wrong, email me. i tabbed this from memory without
my bass being present. have fun....
