Shivaree - Goodnight Moon tab

This is a great song by Shivaree.  I've actually performed it on stage a few times,
and this worked beautifully.

To start, the main bass riff of the song is this: Intro bassG |--------------------------------||D |---------2--3--2----------------|| x3A |---0--3-----------3--2--0-------||E |--------------------------------||
G |--------------------------------||D |--------------------------------|| A |---0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0------------||E |--------------------------------||
If you're playing without a bass, you can mute this riff on your guitar. Common sense. Now, there's a buzzing sound under the bass in the intro. That can simply be duplicated with an A.
Intro guitar (Optional)E |---------------------------||B |---------------------------||G |---------------------------||D |--2------(Bass Riff Plays)-|| x4A |--0------------------------||E |---------------------------||
Ok. One more optional thing. Throughout the song, there's this descending riff that's repeated. That's a keyboard going down half notes, but I played it with harmonics on stage. It just isn't as long as the keyboard riff, for lack of harmonic notes to play, but it sounds really pretty and spices up the song.
Descending riff (Optional)E |--------12*---------------------------------------||B |----7*-----------12*------------------------------||G |-------------7*-----------12*---------------------||D |----------------------7*-----------12*------------||A |-------------------------------7*-----------12*---||E |----------------------------------------7*--------||
Now, that was mostly just little stuff. Intro's done. You can play the verses and chorus' with a number of effects. I'd recommend using vibrato with a high rate, so it gives a shimmer. But it's up to you. Anyways, here's the song:
