Howdy y'all, i recently decided to do a cover of Penelope in my audio production coarse
and after viewing numerous tabs on the net i realised none of them were very accurate.
Generally speaking people had the main riff down but the rest of the song was severely
lacking - confusing the piccolo bass (bass with light strings that is an octave higher 
than usual)
lines for guitar and vice versa. I also found people were combining the bass during the
verse/chorus with the kick drum groove as they have a very similar sound. I haven't bothered
to check YouTube to try and match what they're playing live - this sounds extremely 
close to
the album version, which is what you want ;) There are a number of inversions that are just
as easy to play but this worked well for me.
Hope you enjoy it!

===============================================================================

Guitar 1:Intro/verse/chorus (alternate picking makes the string skipping easier, you want to let it ring out)e |------------0------------------0-------------------0--------------------------|B |--------3-------3----------3--------3----------3-------3-----------3---0---3--|G |----------0---0---0----------0---0----0----------0---0---0-----------0---0----|D |--2p0h2--------------2p0h2---------------2p0h2--------------2p0h2-------------|A |------------------------------------------------------------------------------|E |------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Bridge (this first bit sounds like all downstrokes to me)e |----------------------------------------------------------|B |----------------------------------------------------------|G |--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-5-5-4-4---0-----0-0-0-0-----------------|D |--------------------------4---4-2---------0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|A |----------------------------------------------------------|E |----------------------------------------------------------|

Guitar 2:Outro/bridge-overdub (you'll have to listen to get the timing on this one)e |----------------------------------------------------|B |------0---------0-----------------------------------|G |----0-----2---2/5---5-4-----0---0------0------------|D |--5-----5---5-----5-----5-4---4---44/5---5-0---0-2--|A |----------------------------------------------------|E |----------------------------------------------------|
e |---------------------------------------------------------------------------|B |---------------------------------------------------------------------------|G |----0---0-------0---0---0-------0---0---0-------0---0---0-------0---0---0--|D |--4---4---4/5-2---4---4---4/5-0---4---4---4/5-2---4---4---4/5-0---4---4----|A |---------------------------------------------------------------------------|E |---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
=============================================================================== As mentioned earlier the bass lines are played on a piccolo bass. If you don't have one it still sounds fine and if you really wanted you could use a pitch shifter to move it up an octave.
Bass 1:Verse/chorus (you can add extra plucks on the first 7, 10 and 8 but its the kick drum that gives that impression)G |--------------------------7----|D |---------------------/7h9---9--|A |--/7----5--/10-----------------|E |----------------8--------------|
Bridge (there is a piano line that mimics most of these notes, listen for the timing, its quite slow)G |----------------0-----------------------------------------------------|D |----------4-------------------------9~----10~--12~--------------------|A |--7~----7---7-----------------7---------------------10~----9~---------|E |----------------------7~----7---7------------------------------7h8-7--|
Bass 2:Bridge-overdub (its a steady continuous pluck here, i just added spaces to make counting easier)G |------------------------------------------|D |------------------------------------------|A |--7777-7777-7777-7777-6666-6666-6666-6666-|E |------------------------------------------|
G ----------------------------------------------------------|D ----------------------------------------------------------|A -10101010-10101010-10101010-10101010-7777-7777-6666-------|E ----------------------------------------------------7777--|
Thats it, I'll leave it to you to figure out when to play all these parts, its pretty obvious.
