Hi peoples!
Hmm...no Zappa here yet - but there is now. This is the way that I play this
one in my band The Zappa Instrumentaale. It's not all that hard to play but
what might trip you up is the tempo that the notes are played at (especially
the quintuplets at the end). Watch out for time signature changes! I would
appreciate any correspondence from FZ fans (especially other FZ TABs, either
Bass or Guitar) &, of course, corrections are most welcome.
