Silverchair — Surfin Bird bass tabs

  Rate this tab:








Surfin' Bird is a cover of the Trashmen and the Cramps, recorded
in less than two
hours in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia during late January
1996. It appears on
MOM, a compilation which is a benefit for the Surfrider Foundation.
Very basic song
with three chords. I think the bass follows the guitar except
in the second riff.

the first riff played eight times is:
E5 B5 E5 B5
e||———————————————————————————————————————————————||
B||———————————————————————————————————————————————||
G||—o——9—9——9—9————————————9————9———————————————o—||
D||—o——9—9——9—9————9—————9—9————9———9————9—9—9——o—||

G||———————————————————————————————————————————————||

A||—o——7—7——7—7————————————7————7———————————————o—||
E||————————————————7—————7——————————7————7—7—7————||

"Everybody's heard a—bout the bird ..."


the following riff isn't the same for guitar and bass:
B5 A5
|—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————|
|—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————|
|—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————|
|——9———————————————————————————————7——————————————————————————————————|
|——9———————————————————————————————7——————————————————————————————————|

|——————————————6———7———6———————————————————————4———5——————————————————|
|——————6———9———————————————9———6———————4———7———————————7———4——————————|
|——7———————————————————————————————5——————————————————————————————————|

"Don't you know about the bird, everybody's heard about the bird."


The third is the same as the first
one, played twice, then a E5 chord that Daniel slides down.
E5 B5 E5 B5 E5

Order:
Repeat four times these three riffs one after another, with
a pause of four
beats between the first and second times for drums, then a pause
of four
beats between the second and third times for singing, and finally
a pause
of eight beats between the third and fourth times for drums.
