Opiate Bass Tab

Ok, here are the TOOL bass lines I promised way back when.  I figgured I'd
do something to "redeem" myself for my sins.  Bassists, for your jamming
pleasure I have transcribed (sometimes only parts of) "Prison Sex", "Bottom",
"Opiate", and "Sober".  I broke the songs down into riffs but you'll have to
listen tho the albums to get the exact tempo an rhythm.  Also, the E-string
is dropped to D (this is common in, I think, ALL TOOL songs.)

Tips on playing these songs:
        1)  Play with a pick.  Paul does.  Although, sometimes I do it
            w/ my fingers.
        2)  Boost your Treble and Mid a few notches to get a sharper sound.
            But, you still want to keep the low end rumbling.
        3)  Don't be afraid to experiment.  Paul varies his bass lines a lot,
            give it a try as well.  It's just easier to tab it when it's
            straight forward.
       [4)  Use a 'chorus' effect, 'specially w/ Sober. --Bucky]
Enjoy!

Notes:  Paul D'Amour uses a chorus effect on Intro, Riff 1, and during the
        break.  This makes the harmonics come out better.
