Song: Spaceman
Band: Bif Naked
Tuning: standard tuning 
Tabbed by: Dave Flikkema 


You should listen to the song to get the rythyms cause there isn't 
a good way to tab rythyms plus i'm not to good at writing down rythyms and stuff 

INTRO: 
  
the first thing you hear is an A5 chord with some kind of modulation effect 
probably flange. 

   A5 
e----- 
B----- 
G----- 
D--7-- 
A--7-- 
E--5-- 
  

Then there is this bass Gliss thing. It sounds like its on a Frettless bass 
it starts on the 12th frett E string and slides down.  Though it might be just a 
sequenced part??? 
The drums kick in here with some kewl sounds to go with it. 
a few seconds into it, a kewl guitar part starts. (i don't know it might be 
Keyboard):: 

i usually play this kinda sloppily, hitting other strings (in brackets) and such 
as long as it sounds kewl 

e--------------------------
B-(9)(7)(9)----------------
G--9--7--9--7-9-7-7--9--7--    X4 
D-(9)---(9)----------------
A--------------------------
E--------------------------
etc.. 

Then the bass changes to this: 
G------------------------------------------------------------------------
D--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-----------------------------------
A--------------------------------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-----------------
E--------------------------------------------------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3- 
  

But i like to play it like this:  ((take your pick) i think my way sounds
better) 
  

G-----------------------------------------------------------
D-----------------------------------------------------------
A--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7----------------------------------------
E--------------------8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-\-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-- 

with the new bass part that comes in is a Keyboard part, it sounds kewl 
right after that Bif does that "oooohhhhaaaaaaaaahhh" 

e--7----------- 
B----10--8---- 
G----------9---  x2 
D-------------- 
A-------------- 
E-------------- 


Right before the first there is this muted guitar strumming, but it almost 
sounds they are hitting a harmonic at the same time. possible above the 
5th frett 

VERSE PART: 

The bass does this: 

G-----------------------------------------------------------------
D----------------------------------------------------------------- 
A----------------------------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3----------------
E--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-----------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-- 
  
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/bif_naked/space_man_tab.html ]
Guitar does this right after Bif sings "I see you face on the television" 
then it does it again at the same spot every time. Listen for it and you 
wil get it. 
I'm pretty sure this is a keyboard part. 
play it legato or smoothly. 
e---------------------------------- 
B---------------------------------- 
G---------------------------------- 
D--------------14-12--------------- 
A--14-12-------------14-12--------- 
E--------15-12-------------15-12--- 

It does all this then it does this little interlude which is similar to the
intro. 

Little interlude part: 

Play this all 2x then go back to the verse part twice 

(you will hear that Bass gliss part in here as well, i am sure that it is just 
a squenced sound.) 

BASS 
G-----------------------------------------------------------
D-----------------------------------------------------------
A--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7----------------------------------------
E--------------------8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-\-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-- 

Guitar 
e---------------------------- 
B-(9)(7)(9)------------------ 
G--9--7--9--7-9-7-7--9--7--    X4 
D-(9)---(9)------------------ 
A---------------------------- 
E---------------------------- 

Goes back to the verse part then off to the Prechorus. 
(throughout you hear a High B ringing probably another synth. 
if you want to add it in with Guitar play it on the B string 12th frett. 
add a little vibrato.) 

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

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

Then The CHORUS: 

The bass: 

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

The guitar just Em C G D 

e------------------------------- 
B------------------------------- 
G--0-0-0-5-5-5-4-4-4-7-7-7-- 
D--2-2-2-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-- 
A--2-2-2-3-3-3-5-5-5-5-5-5-- 
E--0-0-0-3-3-3-3-3-3-5-5-5-- 

I play it like that, it sound kewl. 

that is play 4 times 
then there is a transition back to the verse part (like the intro) 
then the verse kicks in again.  there is no little interlude part this 
time it just goes straight to the prechorus then into the chorus 
the guitar and bass both cut out half way through the chrous then come back 
in again, then it goes throught the chorus a few more times and ends like the 
intro part. 

It's a kewl song 
The drums make up half the song though 
but it's realy kewl
