Covered by Goldfinger

This is an incredibly simple song...most of the song is just
these 4 notes in the "Main riff"...it does many things here which
you can time for yourself, like when it does the bass ska-beats,
staccatos and in one part it does shots; but it's all the same notes.
It's still a kickass song though.

Kelly LaMieux plays this song with a pick...if you care to emulate
his style on this song, you should too...also, the bass has a more
deep, full, sound for those with cool tone controls.  No distortion or
effects, except for a bit of a wah effect at the ending on the bass (no
big deal if you don't have a wah, it sounds fine without it too).

Bass tacit all through "...You and I at a little toy shop...99 Red
Balloons go..."; then guitar starts up a bit.

Intro:  (on the word "...by", rests 2 bars, then)

G: ----------------------------------------------
D: ----------------------------------------------
A: ----------------------------------------------
E: ---0--------------------------------0---------

Bridge:  (For want of a better word!)

G: ----------------------------------------------
D: ----------------------------------------------
A: -----7-7------7-------------------------------
E: -----------9------9---2--h-4-p-2--0-----------

G: ----------------------------------------------
D: ----------------------------------------------
A: ------7-7-------7-----------------------------
E: -------------9--------9---7--7--7--9----------

Main riff:  (i.e. through verses and mini-solos)

G: ----------------------------------------------
D: ----------------------------------------------
A: -------------0-----2--------------------------
E: --0----2--------------------------------------
(hit each note 5 times)

At the ending it goes through the main riff quietly
without a pick, and only plays each note once
instead of 5 times.  Piece of cake.  Enjoy!!

Any comments/marvels at the amasing bass skills needed
