TYPE: Bass tab

BAND: Garbage

ALBUM: Garbage

SONG: Only happy when it rains

PERSON WHO WROTE THEM DOWN FROM EAR: Paul Simpson (porl@garbage.com)

 

Tuning is E, A, D, G (standard) I only wrote down the A and E strings because the others aren't used.

/ = Slide up

\ = Slide down

 

I'm pretty sure this is 100% correct but there could be a few minor mistakes in the fast bits.

The verses are played really fast, there are no quiet bits between each line but I wrote each line separately to make it clearer.

I also wrote the lyrics in aswell so you don't get lost.

 

I'm only happy when it

Raaa-aaaains

(now play this until end of song)

 

The verses are really fast and hard to play but the pour your misery down bits are quite easy.

The bass line for this song is so complex that you might not even need to play along with your CD, anyone could recognize it just being played alone. If you're struggling to get the timing right, play along with your CD a few times and you'll get the hang of it.
