THE DEAD MILKMEN
Beach Party Vietnam — Bass

from Eat Your Paisley

Tabbed by: Ben Gladdle (moose9377@hotmail.com)


The bass is really what makes this song. I have actually put
the bass in the guitar tab, but I thought I'd make a separate
file, just to make things easier. Such a cool bass part for this
song, and so easy! You can't lose.


Bass: (for chorus and verse

G———————————————5—4———|————————————————————
D——————4—4————————————|——5—5—5—5—5—5—5—5———
A——5—5——————5—5———————|————————————————————
E—————————————————————|————————————————————

This is the main progression. The first part is played through
all the verses and choruses, except where there is a G above
the words... in which case you play the second bar.

Frankie & Annette bit:

— Hey Frankie, aren't you gonna give mme your class ring?
— Oh, I'm afraid I can't do that, Anneette.
— Why not?
— 'Cause I don't have any arms!
(AH!)

chorus:
Beach party Vietnam
Surfin' with the viet—cong
Cookin' hot dogs with napalm
A beach party viet—nam

f&a bit:
Annette, she wants Frankie's ring
Franky wants Annette's thing
They're layin' on the West Coast
There's gonna be a wiener roast

The Thing That Only Eats Hippies — Bass

from Eat Your Paisley

tabbed by Ben Gladdle (moose9377@hotmail.com)


Where there's a lot of notes played in a row, I haven't always
put in the correct number of notes, often just to save space.
Just listen along. It's pretty easy to figure where the changes
are, and how many notes you should play.

If you find this a bit hard to play, you could just play the
first note (the D) on the 10th fret of the E string, but I think
it sounds better with the slide.

The guitar riff obscures anything that might be going on during
the D part. However, during the solo, the bass just plays the D
continuously, so I've done the same here.


Solo:
————

Play the chorus bass part behind the solo.

Take Me Apart

This one is really easy. Just the same as the guitar. No funky
bits here (or there). I haven't put the exact amount of notes.
Some times it is single notes, and others it is multiple. Play
it whichever you like.
