Guided By Voices — Game Of Pricks bass tabs

Guided By Voices — Game of Pricks
Written By Bob Pollard
Tabbed by Andrew Morrison

There are 2 versions of this song; the EP version and the one that's on the album
Alien Lanes. As far as it concerns the bass, the album song is slower than the
EP version and because of it has a different feel. Play to taste; I've arranged the
song to my own.

The intro is taken up almost entirely by guitars; you can play a soft alternation of
A to G, but I feel that this muddies the mix ; the intro should be clear as glass.
At the very end of it is the same line as the verse,which is where the bass comes
in.

Intro
G|22222222|6666————|77777777|22222222|————————|77777777|
D|————————|————4444|————————|————————|66664444|————————|
A|————————|————————|————————|————————|————————|————————|
E|————————|————————|————————|————————|————————|————————|


Verse (root notes of power chords mostly, but the end parts are very interesting)

G|22222222|6666————|77777777|22222222|————————|77777777|
D|————————|————4444|————————|————————|66664444|————————|
A|————————|————————|————————|————————|————————|————————|
E|————————|————————|————————|————————|————————|————————|
After this, the bass will do any one of three lines; mix it up to your liking.

line 1:
G|44444444|4446—4—2/|77777777|976—4—2—|
D|————————|———————— |————————|————————|
A|————————|———————— |————————|————————|
E|————————|———————— |————————|————————|

line 2:
G|44444444|4446—4—2/|77777777|777/9—7—6|
D|————————|———————— |————————|——— —————|
A|————————|———————— |————————|——— —————|
E|————————|———————— |————————|——— —————|

line 3:
G|44444444|4446—4—2/|77777777|91197———|
D|————————|———————— |————————|—— ——119|
A|————————|———————— |————————|—— ——— —|
E|————————|———————— |————————|—— ——— —|

After that, the verse ends with this bar;
it is played 3x on the very last time as an outro and ends on A
(very last time)
G|————————|44446666|77777777|2———————|
D|77776666|————————|————————|————————|
A|————————|————————|————————|————————|
E|————————|————————|————————|————————|

Note: the bass has a very warm tone in this song; you can get it by
transposing down a string (move all notes to the next—lowest string
and five frets higher)

Intro
Verse x3 (2 verses, then the third verse is split between an interlude and
the outro)
