Local Natives Chords & Tabs

Version: 1 Type: Bass Tab

Wide Eyes Bass Tab

I tabbed this off of some videos of them playing live and the recorded
version so hopefully it should be right. Standard tuning (EADG).
The song itself has two separate basslines, one of which is played on a
microkorg, but can easily be played on a second bass, it sounds no different.

VERSE.


BREAKDOWN:

There's no bass until the drums become heavy again.

I'm about 90% sure about this part, I couldn't get a clear enough version
with all the fuzz he's using.

MICROKORG

I use setting A24 with the MOD fully down and abit of tweaking, but it's your
own preference. Second lowest octave, played in the middle of the keyboard.

|-G-----------A-E------------F#-D-B--------F#-D-C#--D--------|

It starts with the drums in the intro, plays until the start of the breakdown
then comes back in for the last verse and finishes when the other bass turns
on the fuzz. For added effect, slowly increase the MOD during the last time you play it.

If you want to play that on a second bass, it goes like this:

(no effects)
