BASS TAB

Aerosmith - Sweet Emotion

(S. Tyler, T. Hamilton)

>From the album Toys In The Attic, 1975

Bassist: Tom Hamilton

 

Tabbed by: Austin Lewis (Nitsua111@aol.com)

 

This tab makes a few corrections and includes

additions to the tab originally done by Steve

Schmidt.

 

 

 

Riff One:

Intro / Chorus / Outro Riff:

G|--------12--------14-14----|-----------------|

D|---------------------------|-----12-11-14-14-|

A|-12--12-----12-12----------|-12--------------|

E|---------------------------|-----------------|

 

These notes are "12"s, "11"s, and "14"s. They

are not "1"s, "2"s, and "4"s. That's kind of

obvious but I thought I'd point it out just in

case, to avoid any confusion.

You don't have to play the first A (12th fret on

the A string) in the second half of the riff, I

added it in. I think it sounds better with it

added, but it's up to you.

 

 

Riff Two:

Verse Riff:

G|---------------------------|

D|---------------------------|

A|-5-----------3-------------|

E|---5---5-5-----5---3-5---3-|

 

This isn't exact, but it's close. Personally, I

play something that sounds similar, which I have

tabbed out below:

 

Verse Riff Variation:

G|---------------------------|----------------|

D|-------7-------------------|----------------|

A|---------------------------|----------------|

E|-5-5------5--------3-5---3-|----------------|

 

 

Riff Three:

Break Riff:

G|------------|----------------|

D|------------|----------------|

A|-5-3-0------|----------------|

E|--------0-2-|-0-3-3--0-4-4-5-|

 

This repeats a few times, and then there's a

different ending the last time you play it.

Here it is:

 

|----------------|

|----------------|

|----------------|

|---3---4---5----|

 

And then the very last time you play this riff,

before the guitar solo outro, you don't play

the second half. Instead, you hold the F# (2nd

fret on the E string, the last note you played

in the first half of the riff) and let it ring.

 

 

Song Order:

Riff One - x a bunch

Riff Two - x8

Riff Three - x4

Riff Two - x8

Riff Three - x8

Riff One - x8

Riff Two - x8

Riff Three - x4
