Entwistle John — My Size bass tabs

"My Size"  (Bass)
by John Entwistle
>From the album "Smash Your Head Against The Wall"
Written by John Entwistle, 1971, Sundazed Music.

Bass tab, transcribed by Jeremy D (fearofscissors@aol.com), with help from
David Goodwin and Gary L.'s original guitar transcription.

It may not be definitive, but at least it's a start.
This is my first tab, and I'm pretty damn proud of it.

The key is:h=hammer—on
p=pull off
...=hold/let ring 'til the next note

The intro and main riff:

G|————————————|————————————|————————————|——————————————|
D|————————————|————————————|————————————|——————————5———|
A|——5h7—7—7—7—|——5h7—7—7—7—|——5h7—7—7—7—|——————5h7———7—|
E|————————————|————————————|————————————|——5h7—————————|

...done in the verses as well.


Then, there's the bridge; it's easiest to listen to the recording for timing.

G|—————————|———————————|—————————————|————————————|————————
D|—————————|———————————|—————————————|—0...———————|0———————
A|—————————|—1...——————|1...—————————|————————————|————————
E|3...————1|———————————|—————————————|————————————|————————
"Now..." "round..." "You never.." "...ground."

G|————————|————————————|———————|————————|
D|0...————|————————————|———————|————————|
A|————————|0......—————|0...———|——0...—2|
E|————————|————————————|———————|————————|
"Make me...small, wish I was...tall"

Then right back to the verse, then chorus:

G|————————|————————————|——————————————|————————————————————————————|
D|————————|3———————————|—0...—————————|——————————0...——————————————|
A|—0...———|————————————|———————————0——|—2...———————————————————0...|
E|————————|————————————|——————————————|————————————————————————————|
"I'm gonna bring you... my size." "One of...gonna make ya fall."

G|————————|————————————|————————————|
D|————————|3...————————|—0——————————|
A|—0...———|————————————|—————0...———|
E|————————|————————————|————————————|
"I'm gonna bring you... my size,"

G|——————————————————————————————————————|
D|———————————————2...——0————————————2———|
A|—2———————————————————————————0————————|
E|——————————————————————————————————————|
"Smash your head...against the wall!


Continue with the necessary riffs (verse, bridge, chorus).
Improvise as you please. At the end, amid much crashy noise and such, there's a "Boris—the—Spider"
type run——

G|————————————————————|
D|————————————————————|
A|——7—6—5—4—3———0...——|
E|————————————3———————|


...and there you have it. Enjoy! Apologies for my excessive use of "then."
