OK.  I haven't seen anyone else post any Zappa tunes, I have a bunch 
figured out so I've decided since I have nothing better to do at 3:00 in 
the morning I'll try my first PC tab.  Bass guitar only, I'm not in the 
mood to post the guitar part, I'm not that ambitious.

For those of you not familiar with this tune, it is available on several 
Zappa albums, it originally appeared on One Size Fits All.  Featured 
musicians were Frank of course, George Duke, Napoleon Murphy Brock, 
Chester Thomas, Tom Fowler, and Ruth Underwood.  IMHO the _best_ version 
of this song is on the album "The Best Band You Never Heard In Your 
Life".  I highly suggest picking it up.

My TAB explanation:

x/y denotes a slide from fret x to fret y.
everything else is self explanitory.


Anyways, here it goes.

   "she was the daughter....

OK, that's enough for now.  I'll post the bridge and the outro stuff 
later, I'l friggin' tired.  The verses are basically improv in A major, 
really simple stuff.  These figures in the intro repeat at various times 
during the song, you can figure out where.  Like I said, I'll finish it 
later and post it.

So what do people think?  Did I really f**k up or is this pretty cool?
