Get Up Kids — Close To Home bass tabs

song: Close to Home
artist: The Get Up Kids
album: Something to Write Home About
tabbed by: John Krohn (jkrohn@scs.k12.mi.us)

This song is played fairly high on the neck for most of the time, which makes
this tab kind of hard to follow, because of all the fret #'s in double digits. Stick
With it though, I guarantee this is 100% correct, down to every fill and nuance. Oh,
by the way, there is a Get Up Kids bass tab website out there that has been ripping
off my tabs and claiming them as their own. Make no mistake, the version that appears
on the bass tab archive is always the original, most correct version. Anything else
floating around out there is incorrect, or incomplete at best.

This intro/verse riff is very cool. A good example of why your basslines shouldn't
chug along in straight 8th notes following the guitar.

The individual parts are first, then the order of the parts. == means to let the note
ring, a ^ denotes a hammer—on or pull—off.

I know this part is confusing, but I wanted to tab exactly what the
bass is doing.. just remember those are all 10's, 12's, and 14's, we
don't use the first fret at all for the outro.
