Primus — Over The Falls bass tabs

Song: Over The Falls
Artist: Primus
Album: The Brown Album
Bassist: Les Claypool
Tabber: Daniel Gilbert

There was stuff missing from Neal Conway's (damnsaxon@aol.com) so here
is my version. The song is played on an acoustic stand up bass (check the
video) so to get a better sound slide to all notes on the same string
(I'll mark this with a / when needed). There are loads of variations,
some of which I tabbed but in order to sound a pro just use the E minor
pentatonic scale (a crude version of which is at the bottom of this tab) to
improvise. These timings are only rough, listen to the song to get it right.

Played in a steady 3/4 time
