Song: Zooma
Artist: John Paul Jones
Album: Zooma
Tabbed by: Philippe Alexandre Clegg (phil25uk@hotmail.com)

This is the title song to JPJ's great album Zooma. It is played on either an 8—
or 12—stringed bass, so there is a thick sound (use an octave pedal maybe...).
There are some pretty hard riffs to hear and transcribe, and for these I have
either tabbed an alternative or left a blank. I never play bass with a pick,
but this one is a fast one. JPJ must use a pick for this one to hit all of the
strings anyway. So, here you go.

Riff A



Riff B

G———————————————|| ———————————————————————————| Whole riff repeated 4 times
D——————————————*|| —————————————————5—6—5—7—6—| but there is a long bass part
A—7——6——5——4———*|| —7——6——5——4——5—7———————————| going off at the end of the
E———————————————||X3 ———————————————————————————| 4th time. Back in with A.

Those are your riffs. Just use each one when appropriate, you'll hear the change.
Well have fun.
