Whistle For The Choir Bass Tab

============================
Song: Whistle For The Choir 
Artist: The Fratellis
Tabbed by: Pautu
Tuning: Standard 
============================

Song structure:
-Intro
-Verse1
-Chorus1
-Bridge(Intro)
-Verse2
-Chorus2
-Break
-Outro

Bass starts at Chorus1, playing the main riff.
In fact, it starts at the last beat of the Verse1. 
I tried to show where the beats of each measure hit (with dots and numbers)
and its correspondence to the notes to be played, to help fitting the riff.
If you find this confusing, just ignore those dot lines.

Main Riff:
G|------------------------------------------------4-4----4--|
D|------1-2-----2-2-2---6-----6---6-5-4-----4-4-4----4--4---|
A|--2-4------2-----2-------6----(6)------4-----4------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------|
                                          
      4   1  2  3  4    1  2  3   4   1  2  3  4  1  2   3

*When you reach the end of the riff start again straight ahead 
(the first #4 on the timing line must follow the last #3)


This Main Riff is repeated through the Chorus1, Bridge, Verse2 and Chorus2,
until the Break, where the tone changes and it goes:

Break Riff:
G|-----------------------------------2-2-2-2-4-4-4-4--|
D|-------------4---4--4-3-2---2-2-2-------------------|
A|--5---5-5-5----4-(4)-----2----2--------------------|

    1 2 3  4   1 2 3  4   1 2 3  4   1   2   3   4


And finally the Outro ('banjo' solo + chorus1), which is the main riff with 
slight variations:

G|------------------------------------------4-4-2-2-1-1------|
D|--2-2-0-2-2-2---6-6-4-6---6-5-4-----4-4-4-------------4-4--|
A|-----2-----2-------6----(6)------4-----4-------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------| x2
                                         
    1  2  3  4    1  2  3   4   1  2  3  4  1  2    3   4

G|------------------------------------------4-4----4--4--4---|
D|--2-2-0-2-2-2---6-6-4-6---6-5-4-----4-4-4----4-4-----------|
A|-----2-----2-------6----(6)------4-----4-------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------|
                                         
    1  2  3  4    1  2  3   4   1  2  3  4  1  2   3  4  1

End with the three last note-strokes and let ring.
