Kate Bass Tab

"Kate" by Ben Folds Five

Tabbed by Paul Fivey with a little help from
a very mixed up tab which appears on a BF5 fan site.

Then after a while there's a bridge, where the lyrics go:
	"Down by the...."

Play this solo through twice then go to the bridge
which this time round contains a cool little fill.

At the point of the three stars ***  play:

G------------------
D--5-5-5----5-5-5--
A------------------
E------------------

This is played after the two low G notes in the gap
you'd normally leave.

The last chorus does the whole "I wanna be" part 
then goes to the "Kate" parts normally but then things 
start to vary. So, on the first "Kate" 
break off from the normal chorus and play what's below
then end.

G-----------------------------------      
D---------------3--------------3----       
A----------3--5------------3--5-----      
E--1---4-5---------1---4-5---------- 

G-----------------------------------      
D---------------3----------3--5-6---       
A----------3--5--------3-4----------      
E--1---4-5---------6----------------    This section
				is played twice, then
   
G------------------      
D---------3--5-6---       
A-----3-4----------      
E-6----------------   This line is played three times
				then the song ends.

Whew! That's a big tab, but certainly better than any
I've found on the net so far.  If you have a BF5 site
feel free to steal it, I don't care.

The only tricky bit of this song is the transition 
from the chorus to the verse, but if you listen to 
the song and try to imagine playing the line, it
helps (try hurrying the first two notes of the walk
that follows if that helps.)

As usual, any questions, problems or anything, 
just email me.
