Heroes And Villains Bass Tab

Song Title: Heroes and Villains
Artist: Beach Boys
Written by: Brian Wilson/Van Dyke Parks
Transcribed by: Andrew Bee

Note: This song is another fine example of Brian Wilson's creative mind. 
Here is a rough idea of the bass work. It seems fairly simple, and probabley 
should be played on a 5-string bass, but here it is arranged on a 4-string.

VERSE(S)
g-------------------------------------
d-------------------------------------
a-----4-------4-------4-------4-------
e-----------4-------4-------4-------4-
      1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +
"I've been in this.....

a-----4-------4-------4-------4-------
e-----------4-------4-------4-------4-

      villains"..

Repeat this pattern again for Verse II: "Once at night...". End the second 
last bar simply on "a--4--".

CHORUS:
Note: Allow note to sustain over the whole 4 bars.

    "Doo Do............ ba ba.....

a------------6---------------------------
e----6---------------4-------------------
     1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4
     Do.............ah.."

VERSE III: Repeat Verse tab for "La La La...la", and "Shall be Peace in the 
Valley" section. After this the BASS drops out and there is the vocal 
exercise.

BRIDGE I: Doesn't sound like there's any bass, but try this anyhow - I like 
it. Tempo slows down, assume to half the speed of Verse.

d--------------3----4----6----4----3-------
a----4----6-----------------------------6--
     1    2    3    4    1    2    3    4
"My Children.....rise................wealthy


d--------------3----4----6----4----3---------
a----4----6-----------------------------6-(hold note)
     1    2    3    4    1    2    3    4
    Wise.................(tempo starts to slow)

BRIDGE II: "I've been in this town". No Bass.

CHORUS: Repeat Chorus pattern, till fade out.

There you have it! I think it gives a basic idea of the song. Any problems,
