Primus — Southbound Pachyderm (ver 5) bass tabs

  Rate this tab:

This is another Primus song that really breaks the mold of irregularity.
Its melodic, heavy on the bass, and almost somewhat normal.
As far as i'm concerned this is a great song for people who really
want
to start taking bass serious, a fantastic first song for any Primus
fan to learn.

There's just a couple of main parts that repeat. The intro, main
verse,
and post verse/chorus. You'll hear them all pretty distinctly.
Just listen and best of luck.


Intro: The beginning of this song sets the pace for the A string,
your gonna wanna
keep it plucking through every bit of the song, occasionally
with a triplet. The first part of this intro repeats several
time for each time the second bit comes around. Just listen to
the song, clear as crystal to pick out.

This intro bit repeats a bit, until you hear that distinct high
pitched cord
leading into the rush of a flemenco stroke.

and see for yourself)

Then the intro bit repeats a few times, give er a listen and you'll
get the timeing of it all no trouble, after this intro "oooh,
quite a surprise" and the actual song kicks in, the rest of the
way through you'll be playing this.

Then, once you hear that high pitched bass chord again, your
back into this little bit:

And there you have it! fit it all together, if you have any trouble
don't hesitate. best of luck.
