Best of What's Around

 

As played by Dave Mattews Band on 'Under the Table and Dreaming'

 

Transcribed at 2:34pm, October 15, 1997 by Cody Rahn.

 

\=slide down from

/=slide up to

h=hammer

p=pulloff

(X)=note slid from, or signification of end of a held note.

 

Ok, this is just about the hardest one to figure out of all of the

songs I've heard by this band. I hope this is enjoyed by all. BTW,

judging from the way the slides up the neck sound, I think this is

played on a fretless. Good luck.

 

Here we go....

 

 

OK. The bass comes in with the lyrics, right after the little

snare intro thing.

And back to the verse again. These comprise all the riffs in the song. Just

Listen along, and you'll get it in no time. The placement is easy to hear, so

you should have no problem.

 

Have fun!
