                OK, here is my second contribution to the Primus guitar folder. When one of
my frieds heard that I was giving Primus GUITAR tabs he said that I was being
retarded. He obviously doesn't realize Ler's superiority. And maybe it is
retarded, but HEY! that's what being a Primus fan is all about.

Groundhog's Day, off of Primus's First LP Frizzle Fry

I'll start by transcirbing the Guitar-equivilent of the bass part in the
first part of the song. This is not a bass tab, it is transposed to guitar
music:

I tried to notate this but it was in 6/8 time and I couldn't think of good
symbols for the timing.

E)-----------|-------------------------------|
B)-----------|-------------------------------|
G)-----------|-------------------------------|
D)-----8-----|--8--X--8--8---8--X--8-8-------|
A)-----7-----|--7--X--7--7---7--X--7-7-------|
E)-----8-----|--8--X--8--8---8--X--8-8-------|

E)----------------------------------|
B)----------------------------------|
G)----------------------------------|     repeat over and over
D)---8--X--8--8--6-5--7-7-----------|     this is also for the verse
A)---7--X--7--7--5-5--6-6-----------|     I didn't take time to figure
E)---8--X--8--8--6-6--7-7-----------|      out the rest of the bass
                                                         part

OK, here's the REAL guitar part:

The openning lead-in-to-riff thingy:

E)------------------------------------|
B)------------------------------------|
G)------------------------------------|
D)--2---------------------------------|
A)--2----------------------3-/6-------|
E)--0----------12\--3-/6--------------|

riff:

E)---------------------------------------------------------|
B)--------------------11--11(bend 1/2 step)--(bring back)--|
G)-----------------9---------------------------------------|
D)----------8-/10------------------------------------------|
A)-------7-------------------------------------------------|
E)-----8---------------------------------------------------|

E)-------------------------------------------------------|
B)---10(bend 1/2 step)--(bring back)---------------------|
G)-----------------------------------9-------------------|
D)-------------------------------------12----------------|
A)-------------------------------------------------------|
E)-------------------------------------------------------|

E)--------------------------------------------------------|
B)-10(bend 1/2 step)-x(bring back)------------------------|
G)--------------------------------9-----------------------|
D)----------------------------------12-12-/13-\10-/12-----|
A)--------------------------------------------------------|
E)--------------------------------------------------------|

verse:

E)------------------------------------------------------|
B)------------------------------------------------------|
G)--------10---------10--9------------------------------|
D)---------------------------8--------------------------|
A)---10--------10---------------------------------------|
E)------------------------------------------------------|

play twice. then, for the chorus:

E)------------------------------------------------------|
B)------------------------------------------------------|
G)------------------------------8(bend 1/2 step)--------|
D)---7--X--7--5--5--X--------X--------------------------|
A)---7--X--7--5--5--X--------X--------------------------|
E)---5--X--5--3--3--X--3--5--X--------------------------|

E)------------------------------------------------------|
B)------------------------------8(bend 1/2 step)--------|
G)------------------------------------------------------|
D)---7--X--7--5--5--X--------X--------------------------|
A)---7--X--7--5--5--X--------X--------------------------|
E)---5--X--5--3--3--X--3--5--X--------------------------|


then you play the main riff with a slight variation:

E)---------------------------------------------------------|
B)--------------------11--11(bend 1/2 step)--(bring back)--|
G)-----------------9---------------------------------------|
D)----------8-/10------------------------------------------|
A)-------7-------------------------------------------------|
E)-----8---------------------------------------------------|

E)-------------------------------------------------------|
B)---10(bend 1/2 step)--(bring back)---------------------|
G)-----------------------------------9-------------------|
D)-------------------------------------12----------------|
A)-------------------------------------------------------|
E)-------------------------------------------------------|

E)---------------------------------------------------------|
B)-10(bend 1/2 step)-10(bring back)------------------------|
G)--------------------------------9------------------------|
D)----------------------------------12-12-/13-\10-/12------|
A)---------------------------------------------------------|
E)---------------------------------------------------------|

then you play the verse

the next chorus is like this:

E)------------------------------------------------------|
B)------------------------------------------------------|
G)------------------------------8(bend 1/2 step)--------|
D)---7--X--7--5--5--X--------X--------------------------|
A)---7--X--7--5--5--X--------X--------------------------|
E)---5--X--5--3--3--X--3--5--X--------------------------|

E)------------------------------------------------------|
B)------------------------------8(bend 1/2 step)--------|
G)------------------------------------------------------|
D)---7--X--7--5--5--X--------X--------------------------|
A)---7--X--7--5--5--X--------X--------------------------|
E)---5--X--5--3--3--X--3--5--X--------------------------|

E)------------------------------------------------------|
B)------------------------------------------------------|
G)------------------------------8(bend 1/2 step)--------|
D)---7--X--7--5--5--X--------X--------------------------|
A)---7--X--7--5--5--X--------X--------------------------|
E)---5--X--5--3--3--X--3--5--X--------------------------|

E)------------------------------12(bend 1/2 step)---------|
B)--------------------------------------------------------|
G)--------------------------------------------------------|
D)---7--X--7--5--5--X--------X----------------------------|
A)---7--X--7--5--5--X--------X----------------------------|
E)---5--X--5--3--3--X--3--5--X----------------------------|

then you play the riff again with a different variation:

E)---------------------------------------------------------|
B)--------------------11--11(bend 1/2 step)--(bring back)--|
G)-----------------9---------------------------------------|
D)----------8-/10------------------------------------------|
A)-------7-------------------------------------------------|
E)-----8---------------------------------------------------|

E)----------------------------------------------------------|
B)-10(bend 1/2 step)-(keep bent for next six notes)11-11-11-|
G)----------------------------------------------------------|
D)----------------------------------------------------------|
A)----------------------------------------------------------|
E)----------------------------------------------------------|

E)-----------------------------------------------------|
B)-11-11-11-10(re-bend)-10(let down)-------------------|
G)----------------------------------9------------------|
D)------------------------------------12-12-/13-\9-/12-|
A)-----------------------------------------------------|
E)-----------------------------------------------------|

then you play the verse riff 4 times

And thats the end of the first part.

then, almost like a totally different song, it gets really fast
the guitar starts out like this (this is the main riff):

E)------10-10-10-14-10-----------10-10-10-14-12----------|
B)--/12-----------------12---/12-------------------------|
G)-------------------------------------------------------|
D)-------------------------------------------------------|
A)-------------------------------------------------------|
E)-------------------------------------------------------|

you play that 4 times. then, during the verse you play:

E)------------------12-----------------------------|
B)---/12-12-12-12-----12--/12-----12-12------------|
G)------------------------------12--------12-------|
D)-------------------------------------------12----|
A)-------------------------------------------------|
E)-------------------------------------------------|

you play that three times during the verse, on the fourth time you play:

E)------------------12---------10-10-10-14-12-------|
B)---/12-12-12-12-----12--/12-----------------------|
G)--------------------------------------------------|
D)--------------------------------------------------|
A)--------------------------------------------------|
E)--------------------------------------------------|

then you play the first riff in the second part 2 times

then you play the verse the same way

then you play the first riff in the second part 2 times, doing only half of
the riff on the second time (the bass takes up the other half of it.)

then you play the first riff in the second part 2 times, doing only half of
the riff on the second time (the bass takes up the other half of it.)

then it converts to the solo, before the solo starts, the bass does a chord
thingy and the guitar plays:

E)-------------------------------------------------------|
B)-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-------|
G)-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-------|
D)-------------------------------------------------------|
A)-------------------------------------------------------|
E)-------------------------------------------------------|

then you go into the solo (this was hell to figure out, and I can't even play
it very well, since its at light speed. so good luck with it):

E)-----------------------------------------------------|
B)-----------------------------------------------------|
G)-----------------------------------------------------|
D)-11-13h14-11-13h14-11-13h14-11-13h14-11-13h14--------|
A)-----------------------------------------------------|
E)-----------------------------------------------------|

E)-----------------------------------------------------|
B)-----------------------------------------------------|
G)-----------------------------------------------------|
D)-11-13h14-11-13h14-11-13h14-11-13h14-11-13h14--------|
A)-----------------------------------------------------|
E)-----------------------------------------------------|

E)-------------------------------------------------------|
B)-------------------------------------------------------|
G)-------------------------------------------------------|
D)-11-13h14-11-13h14---11-13h14-13-11-11-9---------------|
A)--------------------------------------------13h14-13---|
E)-------------------------------------------------------|

E)-----------------------------------------------------|
B)-----------------------------------------------------|
G)---------------------------11-----------11----11-13--|
D)--------------11-11h14-11----14-11-14----14----------|
A)-11-11h13-11-----------------------------------------|
E)-----------------------------------------------------|


E)----------------------------------------------------|
B)-12----12-------------------------------------------|
G)----13----13-11-------------------------------------|
D)-----------------14-12------------------------------|
A)------------------------14-13-14-13-11-13-13-13-----|
E)----------------------------------------------------|

E)--------------------------------11-11-11--14-14-14----|
B)--/14-14-13-13-9-/11-9--------10-10-10--13-13-13------|
G)------------------------10-9----9--9--9---12-12-12----|
D)------------------------------------------------------|
A)------------------------------------------------------|
E)------------------------------------------------------|

then you play the first riff in the second part 2 times, doing only half of
the riff on the second time (the bass takes up the other half of it.)

then you play the first riff in the second part 2 times, doing only half of
the riff on the second time, instead playing:

E)--------------------------------------------------|
B)--------------------------------------------------|
G)--------------------------------------------------|
D)-11--14--13---11--14--13------11\-----------------|
A)-11--14--13---11--14--13------11\-----------------|
E)--9---12--11---9---12--11------9\-----------------|
