Carmelina Tab

Artist: The Matthew Good Band
Album: The Audio of Being
Author: Brandon Beasley, b-beasley@excite.ca
Notes: Great Song, Matt Good and Company are back with a sweet album and this kick-ass single.
I'm tabbing out both guitar and bass, guitar first.  And apparently, last time I tabbed a song, 
I showed it upside down, so I guess I'll do it the 'right' way this time :)

BASS

Plays the root notes of all the the Rythm guitars chords, but is tuned down to C#, so from low
to high: C# A D G.  It plays the exact same note, but up one fret.  at the beggining, its a 
constant. C#|--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--|, then after the guitar comes in, it plays the
root notes of all the Ryhthm chords.  If you need help with this, email me at the my addess(both
above and below)  

I dont want to make this tab any longer than it already is, so for lyrics goto 
www.runningforhome.net (its a great MGB site!)

Whew!! That was long.  It helps to have the song on CD or computer, or else my tab wont
make sense.  I reccomend learning the riffs, then listening to the song to get the order right.
