Parabola Bass Tab

   
Dropped-B/E tuning, low to high: BEDG
Transcribed by Ryan Ragsdale 

   LEGEND:
h: hammer-on
p: pull-off
/: slide up
\: slide down

   This song is in dropped-B/E, not dropped-D, as some of the other 
tabs have said.  Therefore, tune your low E down a fourth to B, and 
your A down a fourth to E.  However, if you have a five-string, I 
recommend using it because if you detune your strings that much they 
will get all flappy and will be hard to keep in tune.  So, if you are using 
a five-string, just play like you don't have an A string, because we 
won't be using it.  Be sure to e-mail me with any questions or 
comments.  Good luck and enjoy!
