Frank Zappa — Joes Garage bass tabs

Joe's Garage
from Joe's Garage Act 1,
and Strictly Commercial among others...
Tabbed by Marshall Ricks (packardgoose@hotmail.com)

This tab is basically the bass for the single version, but it's almost the
same as the album version. If you don't have Joe's Garage the album, I
sugggest you buy it, it's one of FZ's best (as if there could be any 1 best
Zappa album).

All the verses are is a variation of this:
G——————————— G———————————————————
D——————————— D———————————————————
A—7——6—————— or A—7—7——6—6——————————
E———————9——7 E———————————9—9——7—7

This goes on for awhile, until it breaks for the go—go riff and the "guess
you only get one chance" riff.

"Well the years is rolling..."
G——————————————————————————————
D——————————————————————————————
A—77777777777777777777777777777
E——————————————————————————————

Do that for awhile, then the white zone vocals, then it goes back to that.


This song follows the simple E A B chord pattern, so there you go, now you
can do that, too.
