                               THE PHILOSOPHER
                            As recorded  by Death
              (From the 1993 Album INDIVIDUAL THOUGHT PATTERNS)

Words and Music by Chuck Schuldiner (R.I.P.)

Tuning:
Low->High
(D G C F) - Fretless Bass: Finger Picking

Bassist: Steve DiGiorgio

I'm pretty sure you all know Steve DiGiorgio is one of the best Bassist in
the world. I recommend you listen to all of this album and HUMAN by Death
along with the rest of the albums Steve DiGiorgio is in to get an idea of
how badass he is. This song isn't too difficult to play but the Bass fill is
a bit tricky in my opinion and the Bass solo at the end is fast. But overall
this song is fun to play!

or comments, or if you simply just want to give thanks.

Special Thanks goes to:
-You for taking the time to read this tab.

me to type this tab.
