Slipknot — Purity bass tabs

Artist: Slipknot
Song: Purity
Album: Self Titled (the original release)
Track #: 9
Bassist: ‘#2’ Paul Gray

Transcribed by: Marc Brokate

Tuning: no matter what you use cuz Slipknot definitely play 2 tunings.
On the s/t they used Drop B, but on most of the tracks on Iowa they used Drop A.
So you use either Drop B (B—F#—B—E) or Drop A (A—E—A—D) for this song.

Start right after ‘Frail Limb Nursery’
