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

 

Transcribed at 10:06pm, September 29, 1997, by Cody Rahn.

H=hammer

P=pulloff

 

A really neat song. I like the quirky way the bass follows the

guitar and yet still holds its character. It's fun to play, and

(lucky me) only requires a 4-string. It's pretty much all in time

and not too difficult, so without further delay...

 

The bass enters the song during the intro when the horn, cymbals,

and violin first play. During the intro, I hit the 7 and then rapidly

but lightly tap with my 1st and 2nd fingers near the bridge to sustain

the note. I've seen Stefan do this, so I'll be a copycat and do it, too :)

This is repeated three times. The violin plays for a moment, and the drums

and bass come in as follows.

note: the notes such as the 9's in this section are to be trilled quickly.

The way they are done is evident in the song if you just listen to it.

The chorus section is just played and adlibbed upon as follows:

This then goes back into a slightly modified verse riff:

This is repeated twice.

 

Right after this, they go back into the intro guitar/voilin thing for six

measures, and on the seventh, the bass returns.

.....and straight back into the verse riff again. Pretty fun.

 

Little addendum here. I saw DMB at the Gorge last July, and Stefan did a bitchin

little slap solo thingie towards the end of this. It was when Dave does the

little percussive vocal thing. The S's are for slap, and the P's are for pop.

The lyrics on the second measure are written to match the beat that they are

on so that the tab there makes a bit more sense..

"Like to, like to, to be"

 

If slappin's your thing, it sounds cool to accent the song like that. I'll

agree that Stefan is a conservative slapper, but he can do it like awesome

when he does!
