Stabbing Westward: "The Thing I Hate"
From the album Darkest Days, Copyright 1998 Stabbing Westward
(This song also appears as the theme from the Playstation game Duke Nukem:

Time to Kill, as well as on the CD Duke Nukem: Music to Score By)
Tabbed by "Emptyeye" (emptyeye@juno.com)

As with the last tab I did ("On Your Way Down"), don't expect perfection.
I do believe I'm reasonably close, but perfection is a bit much to ask for.

As with "On Your Way Down", this song is in Drop—D tuning for 4—string basses.
Also like in OYWD, the song will be divided up into 16th notes. However, in
this song you'll have to count VERY fast in order to hear it. The only real
reason I did it is because of a couple of dotted 8th note rhythms during the
verses.

This tab tells you where the notes go, but not how long to hold them. For the
full value is typical, but again, if you're not sure listen to the CD.

Riff #1:
G ————————————————|————————————————|
D ————————————————|————————————————|
A ————————————————|————————————————|
D 2———3———5——3——0—|2———3———5——3——0—|

Riff #2:
G ————————————————|————————————————|
D ————————————————|————————————————|
A ————————0———————|————————0———————|
D 4———5——————5——2—|4———5——————5——2—|

Riff #3:
G ————————————————|————————————————|
D ————————————————|——————————0—————|
A 3—3—3—3—3—3—3—3—|0—0—0—0—0———————|
D ————————————————|—————————(0)————|

Riff #4 (It's not really the bass riff but it's kinda interesting to play):
G ————————————————|————————————————|
D ————————————————|————————————————|
A ————————————————|————————————————|
D 2——22—2—2—3—2—0—|2——22—2—2—3—2—0—|

Notes: Most of the bass lines are done through a synth...keep this in mind.
Also on Riff #3 it's really your choice as to which octave you want to go to
on the last D.
In spite of that, here's the order of the riffs in the song, or at least how
I play them:
(4 measure rest at beginning of the song)
Riff #1 3X
Riff #2 1X
Riff #1 3X
Riff #2 1X
Riff #1 9X
Riff #3 1X
Riff #1 1X
Riff #3 1X
Riff #1 3X
Riff #2 1X
Riff #1 9X
Riff #3 1X
Riff #1 1X
Riff #3 1X
(4 measure rest)
Riff #4 2X (Optional; Otherwise another 4 measure rest)
Riff #1 4X
(2 measure rest)
Riff #1 1X
Riff #3 1X
Riff #1 1X
Riff #3 1X
Riff #1 7X
Riff #2 1X
Hehe. It looks tough but it's really not. You'll figure it out if you just
listen to the song. Bye!
