American Baby Bass Tab

Tuning: Standard

Here is the main riff. Lessard improvs pretty much all through this song. 
This is just the thing he starts out with. If you want to change it up, after
one measure in G, he moves up to B for half a measure then A for the other half.
Then just repeats this sequence with improvs.

G|--------|--------------|
D|--------|------9-7-----|
A|--------|----9---------|
E|--3--3--|--7--------5--|

The chorus is basically just a punk line. Sometimes he improvs harder stuff,
the improvs are the same things he uses in the verse.
G|-------------------|-------------------|
D|-------------------|-------------------|
A|-------------------|-------------------|
E|--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--|--7-7-7-7-5-5-5-5--|

This is the "Hold on to you..." bridge part. "Chris Zepplin" gets the credit
for figuring out most of this part. It is the same as the guitar mainly, but
at the end of the 3rd run there is a fill.
G|------------------|--6h7p6--|------------------|--6h7p6-7-9--|
D|-------7---9------|---------|-------7---9------|-------------|
A|-----9---7-----9--|---------|-----9---7-----9--|-------------|
E|--10---------7----|---------|--10---------7----|-------------|

G|------------------|--6h7p6-----6-7-7-9--|-----------------6h7p6-7-9--|
D|-------7---9------|----------9----------|-------7---9----------------|
A|-----9---7-----9--|--------9------------|-----9---7-----9------------|
E|--10---------7----|---------------------|--10---------7--------------|

The violin part doesn't sound too good on the bass, but here it is if you
want to mess around with it.
G|---------------|---------------------------|
D|--16-16----16--|-----19-19-19-18-16----16--|
A|--------19-----|--19----------------19-----|
