Porcupine Tree — Stars Die bass tabs

(submitted by bigbasstabs)




From the album "The Sky Moves Sideways"
This is my first tab and I would just like to say that I only want to make this piece as simple as possible.
Collin Edwin is one of my main inspirations to play bass as any bass line he comes up with is extremely juicy.
In this song, Collin improvises a bit so if you mix up any of the variations (as in play Variation #2 and #3 etc.)
it will still sound good. So don't be discouraged to play strictly the way the song is. Just play whatever variation
you feel is right and go for it. Ive organized the variations and chorus's like so just to not mix you up by putting
things all over. Ive thought of tabbing the entire song but that would just take lots of time but the tabs below is
basically a map of what to play. I recommend listening to the song for the rhythm (obviously) and to spot any
other variation I've missed. Enjoy and have lots of fun.
