Minus The Bear – This Aint A Surfin Movie tab


Alright, this is my first tab that I've actually finished.
Minus the Bear in general tends to have the drums play a bit faster then the guitars. 
song in particular has a really slow tempo in the melodies. The intro/verse and chorus 
is very off-tempo in the studio recording.

In the chorus, when I say rake, I mean a slow strum. It should be fast enough so each 
rings clear and induvidually. Then at the end of each strum, cut off the sound with your palm.

Around the middle of the song, the lead guitar does random improv throughout the verses. 
is all done on the key of Bm. I'm pretty sure the minor pentatonic scale is being used.

Hope you guys enjoy this tab. It's one of my favorite songs in MtB.
