Modest Mouse - Dramamine tab

Modest Mouse- Dramamine
Guitar tab: By: Logan Camsky
Key:
   w = use whammy
  ++ = when two plus symbols are surrounding a number use a natural harmonic
w++w = use whammy after you get a natural harmonic ringing
  /  = slide
  h  = hammer on
  p  = pull off
  ~  = let note ring before moving on, listen to song for timing

   ********ALL of the whammy bends in this song are UP BENDS to a higher note,
Listen to the song to get it right***************

Let it be known I used several other tabs to help create this one, Not exact
replicas but similar. I think it sounds perfect, and if you don’t… well, go write
your own or something. Anyway here you go:
Intro: (Bass)transposed for  6 string electric in standard tuning ( this plays
throughout the entire song)
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----5-------4-------2-----4--------------------------------------------------------|
A|--7---7---5---5--3----3-----5------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------3----------------------------------------------------------|

This Bass line come in around the middle of the song somewhere and continues for
awhile and then go’s back to the first one.

Cool sound Isaac does with harmonic and tremolo whammy bar, sorry for those of you
without a trem you won’t be able to get this right; by the way he bends up by just
pressing on his floating tremolo bridge, he doesn’t use a whammy bar, but you can
if you’d  like.(Listen to song to get the number of whammy bends right with each
note):
e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---w+5+w--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------w+5+w----w+5+w---------------------------------------------------|
D|----------w+5+w-------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|x7
After every TWO times of that (the harmonic/whammy section above) throw these fast
harmonics in without the whammy:
e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----+5+---+5+--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--+5+---+5+-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|x3
 Play all of that harmonic section above about 7 or 8 times and then go into main riff 
shown below:

-Alternate bass line is clear here…..

back to original bass line and at   4:15 begin harmonic whammy section again minus the
additional harmonic part end 4:27
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---w+5+w-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------w+5+w----w+5+w----------------------------------------------------|
D|---------w+5+w-------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------|x3

at 4:27 do initial main riff
e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--9-7-9/12-9-7------------9-7-9/12-9-7-9-7---7-5----------------------------------|
D|--------------9-7-5-7-9-5------------------5-----5--------------------------------|

G|--9-7-9/12-9-7-----------9-7-9/12-9-7-9-7---7-5----------------------------------|
D|--------------9-7-5-7-9-5-----------------5-----5---9--7--0--7--5---9/7----------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
then do this :
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---9-7-7-5---------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------5---5-9-7-0-7-5-0--------------------------------------------------------|

B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--9/7--------7/9/7-------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

I really don’t know about that part at the end that all trippy, so I usually just do
this and use a lot of distortion:
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
