Modest Mouse - Dramamine tab version 2

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 exactreplicas but similar. I think it sounds perfect, and if you don’t… well, go writeyour own or something. Anyway here you go:Intro: (Bass)transposed for 6 string electric in standard tuning ( this playsthroughout 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 forawhile and then go’s back to the first one.e|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|D|---5------4------2---5--5--5-------------------------------------------------------|A|-7---7--5---5--3---3---------------------------------------------------------------|E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Cool sound Isaac does with harmonic and tremolo whammy bar, sorry for those of youwithout a trem you won’t be able to get this right; by the way he bends up by justpressing on his floating tremolo bridge, he doesn’t use a whammy bar, but you canif you’d like.(Listen to song to get the number of whammy bends right with eachnote):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 fastharmonics 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: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---------------------------------|A|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

I really don’t know about that part at the end that all trippy, so I usually just dothis and use a lot of distortion:e|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|B|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|G|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|D|-----14/18--------------------------------------------------------------------|A|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|E|----------------------------------------------------------------------|Aprox--|x5
