Time Warp Bass Tab

   
Title:  Time Warp
From:  Rocky Horror Picture Show
Tabbed by:  Martin Cox (mcox@indy.net)
Thanks to:  The anonymous author of the MIDI version of this song, my
girlfriend for use of her CD for the real version, and the author of
TablEdit (www.tabledit.com).


This song is deceptively easy.  Once you get the pattern and rhythm down
it's a great little groove.  I find that playing along with the recording
it sounds better if I tune down a half-step (Eb Ab Db Gb), but if you want
to cover the song, it'll work fine on standard tuning.

D|-------2------------------------|
A|-----24--4-22-4-2-0-3-4---------|

           And then a step to the right


With your hands on your hips

The chorus then seamlessly moves into:
2nd verse
G|------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------2-------22------------5----55-2-0-2-|
E|-2-0-2-5-2-0-2-55-2-0-2---4-2-4----4-2-4--3-0---0-3---------|
     It's so dreamy...

(neat little staccato rhythm here - listen to the song for timing)
G|----------------|
D|----------------|
A|-0-00-0000-0000-|
E|----------------|
  No, not at all...

Start second verse over again...
G|------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------2-------22------------5----55-2-0-2-|
E|-2-0-2-5-2-0-2-55-2-0-2---4-2-4----4-2-4--3-0---0-3---------|
   In another dimension...

But this time end it with:
G|------------------|
D|------------------|
A|------------------|
E|-5-2-0-2-55-2-0-2-|


Now Riff joins in and the rhythm changes slightly
G|----------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------222----------22-----------555-2-0-2-|
E|-555-22-0-2-5-2-----44-222-4----4-3-3-0-0-----------|
   With a bit of a mind flip...

G|------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------|
