Surfin' Bird

	  		 
Guitar and Bass Tab 
Standard tuning.  
 
Surfin' Bird is a cover of the Trashmen and the Cramps, recorded in less than two  
hours in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia during late January 1996. It appears on 
MOM, a compilation which is a benefit for the Surfrider Foundation. Very basic song  
with three chords. I think the bass follows the guitar except in the second riff. 
 
the first riff played eight times is: 
       E5          B5     E5        B5 
e||-----------------------------------------------|| 
B||-----------------------------------------------|| 
G||-o--9-9--9-9------------9----9---------------o-|| 
D||-o--9-9--9-9----9-----9-9----9---9----9-9-9--o-|| 
A||----7-7--7-7----9-----9-7----7---9----9-9-9----|| 
E||----------------7-----7----------7----7-7-7----|| 
                                                  X8 
G||-----------------------------------------------|| 
D||-o-------------------------------------------o-|| 
A||-o--7-7--7-7------------7----7---------------o-|| 
E||----------------7-----7----------7----7-7-7----|| 
 
      "Everybody's heard a-bout the bird ..." 
 
 
the following riff isn't the same for guitar and bass: 
   B5                              A5  
|---------------------------------------------------------------------| 
|---------------------------------------------------------------------| 
|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

|--9-------------------------------7----------------------------------| 
|--7-------------------------------5----------------------------------| 
 
|---------------------------------------------------------------------| 
|--------------6---7---6-----------------------4---5------------------| 
|------6---9---------------9---6-------4---7-----------7---4----------| 
|--7-------------------------------5----------------------------------| 
 
  "Don't you know about the bird,  everybody's heard about the bird." 
 
 
The third is the same as the first 
one, played twice, then a E5 chord that Daniel slides down. 
      E5          B5     E5        B5               E5

                                                 X2

||-o-------------------------------------------o-||----| 
||-o--7-7--7-7------------7----7---------------o-||-7-| 
||----------------7-----7----------7----7-7-7----||----| 
 
Order: 
Repeat four times these three riffs one after another, with a pause of four 
beats between the first and second times for drums, then a pause of four 
beats between the second and third times for singing, and finally a pause 
of eight beats between the third and fourth times for drums.
