                             Badfish - Sublime
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuning: Standard

 These are the chords used in the intro:

   A    Bm    G
e|-------2----3-----------------------------|
B|-2-----3----3-----------------------------|
G|-2-----4----0-----------------------------|
D|-2-----4----0-----------------------------|
A|-0-----2----2-----------------------------|
E|-------2----3-----------------------------|

This is the order they are played in
A, Bm, A, G, A, Bm, A, G, A
the strumming pattern and number of beats are easy to figure out

 these are the chords in the verse:

   A   Bm  G  A5  D  E
e|-9----7-----------------------------------|
B|-10---7--8—10---7--9----------------------|
G|-9----7--7--9---7--9----------------------|
D|---------9------7--9----------------------|
A|-------------------7----------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|
This is how the verse goes:
A                         Bm
When you grab a hold of me
     G                       A5
Tell me I will never be set free
                    Bm
But I'm a parasite,
       G                          A
Creep and crawl I step into the night
               D
Two pints of booze,
         G                      A  (fill 1)
Tell me are you a bad fish too? (are you a...)
D                           A
Ain't got no money to spend
D                          A
I know the night will never end
D                   A
Lord knows I'm weak
            D                       E
Won't somebody get me off of this reef?

Verse 2 is the same chords and same rhythm:

Baby you're a big blue whale
Grab the reef when all duck diving fails
I swim, but I wish I never learned
The water's too polluted with germs (fill 2)
I dive deep when it's ten feet over head
Grab the reef from underneath my bed. (underneath my bed but)- fill 3
Ain't got not quarrels with God.
Ain't got no time to grow old.
Lord knows I'm weak.
Won't some body get me off of this reef?
Play intro again then play guitar solo.

This is the guitar solo:

e|------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------|
G|-4h6---  4h6----4br-----------------------|
D|------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|

e|------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------|
G|-------2-4—1h2p1--------------------------|
D|--2h4-----------2h4----------let-ring-----|
A|--------------------2-2p0—--2/4-----------|
E|------------------------------------------|

e|------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------|
G|---------------2p1------------------------|
D|----2h4-4----4-----2/4--------------------|
A|--4---------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|

e|--5---------------------------------------|
B|-----7------------------------------------|
G|--------6—4\2--4-2------------------------|
D|----------------(fill-4)------------------|
A|------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|


 Now I'll tab out all the fills I mentioned earlier

 Fill 1
  (are you a badfish too?)
e|------------------------------------------|
B|--2h3p2-----------------------------------|
G|--------2-----2h4-4-----------------------|
D|----------2h4-----------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|


 Fill 2
...too polluted with germs
e|------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------2h3p2---2h3p2------|
G|-------------------------------------2----|
D|---------------------------------------2--|
A|------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|

Fill 3
   (underneath my bed but)
e|-------------------5----------------------|
B|---------------5-7---7p5------------------|
G|----------2-4/6---------6-----------------|
D|-------2h4---------------7/9-7------------|
A|--0h2h4----------------------let-ring-----|
E|------------------------------------------|

Fill 4
Use a slide and slide it up the neck from the second fret to the 14th. It happens at the 
time as the last note of the solo.

That's about it. I hope you enjoy it. I'm pretty sure this tab is right

| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| h  hammer-on
| p  pull-off
| ~  vibrato
| +  harmonic
| x  Mute note
