/ R.E.M. / Automatic For The People (1992) / The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonight bass tab

The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite

From: Weasel (ara103@mailer.york.ac.uk)

CHORUS BIT:

   D F D F G G C G Am D F D F G G C G Am C Em

G -------------------------------------------
D -0-4-0-4-5-5--------0-4-0-4-5-5------------
A -------------3-2-0--------------3-2-0--3-2-
E -------------------------------------------

That's the only bit I can actually remember from the book, but from what
I can make out this next bit sounds, if not _exactly_ right, at least
pretty close...

VERSE BIT:

  F                   C                F

G --------------------------------------------------------
D --------------------------------------------------------  etc.
A --------------------3-3-2-3--3-3-2-3--------------------
E -1-1-0-1--1-1-0-1-3------------------0-1-1-0-1--1-1-0-1-

Where the verse goes to Am - C, play this in stead of the 'C' riff above

   Am      C

G --------------
D --------------
A -1-1--0-1-3-3-
E --------------

BRIDGE:

   Bm  Am  Bm  Am  Bm  Am  C   Em

G ---------------------------------
D -----------------------------2-2- Not sure whether he plays D or A string
A -2-2-0-0-2-2-0-0-2-2-0-0-3-3----- for Em. Whichever it is, it's 2nd fret.
E ---------------------------------

ENDING:

   C  Em D

G ---------
D -------0-
A -3-3-2---
E ---------

I think that's the lot. If there's anything I've forgotten, let me know,
and, as I say, a lot of this is simply guesswork...
