Radiohead — Bulletproof bass tabs

BULLETPROOF (I WISH I WAS...)
Radiohead
Bassist: Colin Greenwood
Album: The Bends (1995)
Tabbed by Shor Bowman (abowman@sas.upenn.edu)
*MEMBER OF THE BASS TAB ARCHIVE TABBING ARMY*
Original tab by Andrew Baranyai (Andrew@baranyai.freeserve.co.uk)


The last version of this tab was mainly incorrect because it was an
octave too low, but there are other things that Andrew missed. This is a
shame, because this is one of the sweetest, loveliest songs Radiohead has
ever done. And it's actually pretty easy, though it may be confusing at
first. I'm sure you'll get the hang of it.
There are only two main riffs——the verse and the chorus. Here they are.

RIFF #1 ("Limb by limb, tooth by tooth...")
G———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————|
D———————————————10——10—————10—10h12—9———9—9—————12——12——9h10—9——|
A—12——12—12——10—————————10———————————————————10—————————————————|
E———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————|

G———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————|
D————————————9—10——————10—10h12—9———9—9—————12——12—12—————12——12——9h10—9|
A—12——12—12—————————10———————————————————10————————————10———————————————|
E———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————|

This first riff segues cleanly into the second, which is played during the
gorgeous chorus.

RIFF #2 ("Bulletprooooooo...")
G———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————|
D—————————————————9———9—————10—12———|10|——————9h10——————————————————————|
A—10———10—10———12——————————————————————————————————10—9—7————9————10————|

A——10—10———12————————————————————x—x—————|
E————————————————————————————————————————|

And that's it. Do as many variations as you like, but I'm pretty sure that
I've included all of the main ones that Colin does. Lovely song. Please
enjoy. Questions or corrections? Email me at abowman@sas.upenn.edu.
