Tool — Prison Sex (ver 2) bass tabs

Ok, here are the TOOL bass lines I promised way back when.  I figgured I'd
do something to "redeem" myself for my sins. Bassists, for your jamming
pleasure I have transcribed (sometimes only parts of) "Prison Sex", "Bottom",
"Opiate", and "Sober". I broke the songs down into riffs but you'll have to
listen tho the albums to get the exact tempo an rhythm. Also, the E—string
is dropped to D (this is common in, I think, ALL TOOL songs.)

Tips on playing these songs:
1) Play with a pick. Paul does. Although, sometimes I do it
w/ my fingers.
2) Boost your Treble and Mid a few notches to get a sharper sound.
But, you still want to keep the low end rumbling.
3) Don't be afraid to experiment. Paul varies his bass lines a lot,
give it a try as well. It's just easier to tab it when it's
straight forward.
|4) Use a 'chorus' effect. ——Bucky]

Notes: Here are the main riffs. The song consists mainly of these
with the exception of a bridge and a break, both of which I
didn't bother to figure. However, most of the break takes
place on the open—A and 2nd—fret A—string.
