Mighty Mighty Bosstones — Holy Smoke Horns bass tabs

This is a transcription of the horn parts for The Mighty Mighty BossToneS' 'Holy Smoke' 
from 'Don't Know How To Party'.

Note: This is a kick—@$$ horn line, and I can't believe I captured it in bass format.

Part 1: Spoken words.

Part 2: Nate Albert's schweet guitar intro.

Part 3: Horns.

(the two is optional. It sounds like there's eight horn notes in the song, but the sheet
music shows only seven. i'm not sure about how good this sounds, but it's close.)

"No pearly gates, when I die..."

G|—4———4———9—————————

"And I've been told I'll never learn..."

Part 6: Pre—Chorus, right after Dicky sings 'But I don't give a f—ck."

Play the first three parts of the intro, then, instead of part four, play this:

G|———————
D|—————4—
A|—2—7———
E|———————

You can also use the second fret on the e—string or the ninth fret on the a—string instead
of the 4. It depends on whether you want to end it high, low, or not.

Part 7: The chorus ("As far as I can tell...)

Slowly...

G|————————————————————————————————

Play Three times! That's "3", for all yooz idiotz.
