I Know (bass)


From the Brick Shithouse tab archive.
Tabbed by Ian.

I'm sure in the verse when Brian sings while playing the acoustic there is no bass but here's a bass line which goes quite well under it if you want to play along:

[Verse]

|-----------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--|
|--4-4-4-4-4-4-4--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-----------------------|

|-----------|
|-----------|
|--3-3-3-3--|
|-----------|

[Chorus]

|-----------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------|
|--1-1-1-1-1-1-1--3-3-3-3-3-3-3--4-4-4-4-4-4-4--|

|-----------------|
|-----------------|
|-----------------|
|--4-4-4-4-4-4-4--|

Repeat something like 4 times but on the last time before the didgeredoo comes in end on the 4th fret on the E string.

The next bit is where Brian does a sort of a solo:

|------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------3-3-3--6-6-6-6--|
|--4-4-4-4-4-4-4--3-3-3-3-3-3-3------------------|

|----------------------|
|----------------------|
|--8-8-8--10-10-10-----|
|-------------------8--|

Repeat 3 times before doing the ending to it (below):

|-------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--|
|--4-4-4-4-4-4-4--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-------------------|

|-------------------|
|-------------------|
|--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--|
|-------------------|

Repeat the chorus 4 more times and let Brian play out quietly on the acoustic, done.
