Nite Club Bass Tab

Song: Nite Club
Band: The Specials
Album: The Specials/ The Singles Collection
tabbed by: Adam Marish

Hey, I've seen various tabs of this song.  Some of them are
fairly close but some of them are pretty off.  I'm in a Ska 
band myself and we cover this song...so I think I'll try to 
tab it out the right way...

Intro (you can mess around with it if you want)

G:-------------------------------------------------|
D:-------------------------------------------------|
A:------------5---55---76-----------5--567-567-567-|
E:-5---55--57-------------5--55--57----------------|

Then when the Terry goes "Spending Money...On!" play:

G:------------------ 
D:------------------  * Keep in mind that this is played
A:----5-----6-------    after every chorus
E:-77---7-----------


Verse (now the fun starts!) note, there is no bass
during the first verse when Terry is singing...

G:--------------------------|-----------7-7-----|
D:--------------------------|-------------------|
A:-7----------7-----5---5---|-7---------------5-|
E:---0-0--5-7-----7---7---7-|----0-0--------7---|

*** (^) signifies a slide (7th to 10th fret) *** 

G:--------------------------|---------------12---11---7---8-
D:--------------------------|-------------------------------
A:-7----------7-----5---5---|-7--------7^10----9----5---6---
E:---0-0--5-7-----7---7---7-|----0-0------------------------

Little fill before the first chorus

G:-------------------
D:-----4---5---6-----
A:-------------------
E:-0-2---3---4-------

Chorus
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/specials/nite_club_btab.html ]
G:---------------------------|-----------------------------
D:-77--------7------44-55-77-|-77--------7-----------------
A:----9--7-9----5-5----------|----9--7-9----5-5--33-22-00--
E:---------------------------|-----------------------------

*Play first segment again followed by the 
"Spending Money...On!" riff 


Bass Solo

segment 1                   segment 2           

G:-------------------------|--------7-77-7-777-|
D:-------------------------|-------------------|
A:-7----------7----5---5---|-7-----------------|
E:---0-0--5-7----7---7---7-|----0-0------------|

segment 3 (slide!)        segment 4 (notice the slide)

G:---------12^13--12-13--|--------------------------|
D:---------11-12--11-12--|-------------5----6-------|
A:-7---------------------|-7--------4^6-6--7-75-----|
E:----0-0----------------|----0-0-------------------|

segment 5

G:---7---8---9---10---11---10---9---8--
D:-------------------------------------
A:-5---6---7---8----9----8----7---6----
E:-------------------------------------

Bass Solo segment order: 1,2,1,3,1,4,1,5
* Segment 3 is using chords (Hit 2 notes at one time.)


Then the third verse starts...there's no bass at first...but 
when Terry screams "and the beer tasters just like piss!", he 
uses this fill to get back into his bassline...

G:----12---11---7---8----
D:-----------------------
A:-10----9----5---6------
E:-----------------------

Outro

G:--------------
D:--------------
A:----5---6--7--
E:-77---7-------

Well I hope you agree that if this is not perfect, that 
it's pretty close.  Enjoy...and don't forget the slides
because they're vital.
