Opeth — The Grand Conjuration (my Original Version W/ Corrections) bass tabs


Band:Opeth
Album:Ghost Reveries
Song:The Grand Conjuration

G I'm submittiing another "Grand Conjuration" tab because I have made some
corrections
D from my last version.
A
D Drop D tuning

I have spent lots of time working on this tab, and it's a very good tab.
So enjoy. A lot of things that he does is hard to hear, but if you
really listen hard enough you can hear it. The speakers that I used
to figure some of the little things out, you could hear the bass
perfectly, and I just saw them live on Feb. 15 (2006,) so this is
VERY accurate. Once again,
enjoy!:)

*=sticato note h=hammer on p=pull off S=slap P=pop /=slide up \=slide down
X=mute

He uses distortion on parts of the song. I'll tell you when to turn it on and
