Stabbing Westward — Shame bass tabs

Artist: Stabbing Westward
Song: Shame
Album: Wither, Blister, Burn & Peel

Tabbed for bass by Vraptor7

This tab looks long, but it's just a little detailed in places.
I suggest you sit and follow it while listening through the song
before you try it out. I'm sure that the keyboard plays some of
these notes, but my answer to that is simply that it can be all
done by a bass and sounds great as it is.
Another thing, a response to some feedback I've recieved — I think
the bass plays different notes to the guitar during the verse and
and chorus. Might be obvious to some, but you can't used this as a
base for the guitars in the song.

Note : I've used a low B string tuned up to a D for the tab for
easier playing.


Below are the names of the sections I've made after it with all
the tabs, the order to play them in and the number of times to go
through the whole of each of them.
So the song structure is as follows:

1) INTRO(x2)
2) VERSE(x4)
3) CHORUS(x1)
4) INTRO(x2)
5) VERSE(x4)
6) CHORUS(x1)
7) INTRO(x6) —note that there are a few erratic D's played in
this section, you can decide when to play them
as you see fit. On the last two runs through
just keep playing E
8) CHORUS(x1)
9) CHORUS(x1) —note that this is played differently — see the
last section
10) VERSE(x4) —let the last E ring freely ;)



1) INTRO :

Here I've just given the notes, it's really up to you to choose
the rhythm and frequency to play them with. You can actually hear it
clearly enough, it's just hard to convey it through tabs.

3) CHORUS :

I decided it was best if I outlined the whole chorus rather than
risk any complications.
