Thanks a lot to Yani and Ray for giving me the opportunity to do this.

My name is Dimitrije Kostic and any questions about this tab or any
others in the Fear Factory Tablature Archive can be emailed to me at
I will gladly investigate any possible errors in any tablature on this site.


This is the 6th track off "Demanufacture," and is Fear Factory's cover
of Head of David's "Dog Day Sunrise" (Note: Justin Broadrick, drummer
for Head of David, was at one time the guitarist of Napalm Death.

You may notice that this tab differs slightly from the guitar tab. I
moved everything down the neck so that you could take advantage of the
open strings, thus wearing out your fingers less. Bassists should still
take advantage of economy fingering, though. It is very useful in Riff
A. Instead of moving your whole hand down to play the E note on the 2nd
fret of the D string, try playing the 2nd fret on the E string with your
middle finger, the 4th fret on the D string with your pinkie, and the
2nd fret on the D string with your index finger. Enjoy!

Tune all strings down a perfect fourth (B, E, A, D)


H —— hit—on
P —— pull—off
~~~~ —— vibrato
A.H. —— Artificial Harmonic
N.H. —— Natural Harmonic
