System Of A Down — Streamline bass tabs

Song Title: Streamline
Artist: System Of A Down
Album: The Scorpion King OST
Tabbed By: KryojenikStasis (jneale@optonline.net)

This song is HELL. Cool as hell, but hard as hell. And the only
reason is... it's in 6/8! Yes, this is probably the only metal song
you will ever play in 6/8, but that makes it all the more rewarding.
Leave it to SOAD to do something like this.

The main problem you will have is the erratic rhythms. The verses
are in 6/8, but the intro/chorus is in god knows what, most like 11/8
or something really weird. Novices should NOT attempt this song (I
play Primus for fun and I had problems with this!)

"System" Tuning (Low To High C—G—C—F)
Key: Like all System songs, this is in C Minor w/ a minor 2nd
(C—Db—Eb—F—G—Ab—Bb—C)

This song is a pain to get the timing, but you get such a rush when
you nail it. Enjoy!
