Ozric Transcriptions

If you can hum the tune, and know the rhythm, then this should help with the actual frets to play.

Fetch Me the Pongmaster: bassline

intro in C with no bass, then open E 'till

G|  - - - - - - - - -|- - - -|- - - - - - - -|  - - - - - - - -|
D|4|- - - - - - - - -|- - - -|- - - - - - 5 -|7|- - - - - - 5 -|
A|4|- - - - - 5 7 5 7|- - - -|5 - 7 - 5 7 - 7|8|- - 5 - 5 7 - 7|
E|  0 - - 5 7 - - - -|0 - 0 -|- - - - - - - -|  5 7 - 7 - - - -|

and that's the whole song.  the 7/8 measure at the end varies every time.
Many can be done, but two alternate fills are:

G|  - - - - - - -|          G|  - - - - - - - 7 -|
D|7|- - - - 5 9 7|     or   D|7|- - - - 5 7 9 - -|
A|8|- - 5 7 - - -|          A|8|- - 5 7 - - - - -|
E|  5 7 - - - - -|          E|  5 7 - - - - - - -|.

Bass line for "Kola B'Pep" as performed by Ozric Tentacles, as it appears on 
the album _Afterswish_ (1991).  This song originally appeared on _There Is  
Nothing_ (1986).  "Kola B'Pep" was written by Ed Wynne.  I believe Roly Wynne played
bass on this song.

Tabbed by Tim Egan.  Send any comments, suggestions, and especially

Thanks to Mike V for teaching me how to play this song!

Once again, if you listen to the song you can figure out the timing of the notes.

Normal tuning (E-A-D-G)

First riff:

G------------|------------|-----------|-------------|
D------------|------------|-----------|-------------|
A------------|-----2-2-2--|-2-2-------|---0-0-0-0h2-|
E---0-0-0-0--|-0-0--------|-----3-3-3-|-3-----------|

G------------|------------|-----------|---------------|
D------------|------------|-----------|-----------0h2-|
A------------|-----2-2-2--|-2-2-------|---0-0-0h2-----|
E---0-0-0-0--|-0-0--------|-----3-3-3-|-3-------------|

And then on the last part of the "verse" add:

G-------<7>--------- 
D-----------<7>-----
A-------------------
E---0------------0-- (let last note ring until second riff starts)


Second riff:

G---------------|--------------|------------|--------------|
D---------4-----|--------------|-----2------|---------4h5--|
A---5\2-2---2-2-|--5-5-5p4-----|------------|-----2-2------|
E---------------|----------5h7-|-0-0---0-0--|-3-3----------|

four times and then on the last bar add:

G--------4-----------|
D----------4---------|
A---2-2------2-2-----| (let last note ring until drum fill starts)
E--------------------|

Here it is...  if you know the song you can figure out the timing of each note.

Try using a fretless for this song, if you have one...  I wish I did!
