Rapunzel (Bass Tab)


transcribed by Justin Marks


Here's Stefan Lessard's bass part for "Rapunzel" off of the new album.

Watch the 5/4 (Bridge), 4/4 (Verse), 6/8 (Chorus) alternations in the

time signatures, and subtle fill differences in the verse.




G ---------------9---7-

D -----------5-7---5---

A -5-5-5-5-8-----------

E ---------------------




G -------------------------------------------------()-------------------

D -----------------------------(5-3---3----)-------()-------------------

A ---3-5-(5-3-2-3-5-3-2)---3-5-(----5---5-3)---3-5-()---3-5-3-2-3-2-3-2-

E -3---------------------3-------------------3-----()-3-----------------
