Big Head Todd And The Monsters
Key:     C Major

I'm not sure if Rob Squires plays a 5 string but I personally think that it is required
to get the tone.
I know that this isn't quite 100% accurate but it is the way I play with my band.
One note, he plays two 16ths from time to time on the root chord.
