Bionic Bass Tab

PLACEBO: BIONIC:  This is the most annoying bloody bass tab I have 
ever had to do but its turned out nicely and sounds to me just like 
the original.
For this, tune the bass up half a step or place a capo on the first 
fret  ( remember though that with a capo, the normal second fret on 
the neck will now be the first fret,  the normal twelth fret on the 
neck will now be the 11th fret etc... ) so take no notice of the 
letters at the beginning of the tab lines.

Beginning/Verse:

G--7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7---18-18-18-18---
D--0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0----0--0--0--0---
A-----------------------------------------------------
E-----------------------------------------------------

G--18-18-18-18---18-18-18-18---18-14-14-14------------
D---0--0--0--0----0--0--0--0----0--0--0--0------------
A-----------------------------------------------------
E-----------------------------------------------------

after palying that part for a bit, Brian comes in with " none of you 
can make the grade"  and under this you play the pre-chorus part.

Pre-Chorus:

G--11-11-11-12---11-11-11-12---11-11-11-12---11-11-11-12
D---0--0--0--0----0--0--0--0----0--0--0--0----0--0--0--0
A-------------------------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------------------------

G--18-18-18-18---18-18-18-18---18-18-18-18---18-14-14-14
D---0--0--0--0----0--0--0--0----0--0--0--0----0--0--0--0
A-------------------------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------------------------

After doing that part a few times round we come into the chorus.

Chorus:
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/p/placebo/bionic_btab.html ]
G------------------------------------------------------------------
D------------------------------------------------------------------
A--5-5-5-5---5-5-5-5---5-5-5-5---5-5-5-5---------------------------
E-------------------------------------------------3-3-3-3---3-3-3-3

G-----------------------------------------------------------------
D-----------------------------------------------------------------
A-------------------------2-2-2-2---2-2-2-2---2-2-2-2---2-2-2-2
E--3-3-3-3---3-3-3-3----------------------------------------------

G-----------------------------------------------------------------
D-----------------------------------------------------------------
A-----------------------------------------------------------------
E--3-3-3-3---3-3-3-3---3-3-3-3---3-3-3-3--------------------------

Repeat the chorus again and go back into the verse.  After doing the 
verse, pay the pre-chorus and go back into the chorus and play it 
twice.
After all this, Brian starts palying some harmonics and under this 
you simply play the pre chorus twice.
You again go into the chorus, play it round twice and play under 
Brians harmonics with the pre-chorus again.

Finally, just before Brian finishes the song with the harmonics by 
himself, you play;

G--11 let ring......----------------------------------11 let ring...
D------------------------------12 let ring..------------------------
A--------------------------------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------------------------------

G---------------------------------------
D--12 let ring....----------------------
A---------------------------------------
E----------------------------------------

Fini!!  a great song to play but a bugger to write.
