My Mom Still Cleans My Room Bass Tab

   
"My Mom Still Cleans My Room"
MxPx (Magnified Plaid)
-Life In General-
Copyright 1996 Tooth and Nail Records

Mike plays a lot of little riffs on his bass that
make MxPx bass lines pretty unique.  I'll tab each
riff as we come to it, which means you should read
the whole file through before trying to play it ;]
PLEASE NOTE!!! Considering how fast Mike's fingers fly,
I won't put every single time he plays a note, but if you
listen carefully you should be able to figure it out.
(Sorry if this gets long, I'm trying to keep it narrow for
low-res users.)

INTRO

(Most of the E's are second octave, ie play A string 7th fret or
D string 2nd fret.)

E                                   B
Not always nice not always mean, my room has never been seen clean
    A
The way I feel is not always, not always how I seem
    E                                        B
The thoughts that form inside my brain don't always seem to entertain,

Cuz when I tell my company they think there's something wrong with me
