Primus – Poetry And Prose
Here's _Poetry and Prose_ by Primus, from the Beavis and Butt-head album.
This is how I play it, most likely not how Les and Ler play it. This is a
Passable approximation. Feel free to make corrections. And as usual,
Listen to the album to get the rhythm down.

Basically, except for the solo, the guitar is just this riff:

|---------------------------------------------------------------------------
|-----------------------------------------------9----9----------------------
|-----9---9----10-10-9-9-8-8-7-7--------9---9---10---10---------------------
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------
|--7-------------------------------7----------------------------------------
|---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Also, this moves up an octave sometimes.

The bass is similar to the guitar:

|---------------------------------------------------
|---------------------------------------------------
|------7---7-----8-8-7-7-6-6-5-5-------7---7--8--8--
|--0--------------------------------0---------------

Also, there's another part the bass has:

|---9-9-9-9-9-9-10---9-9-9-9-10-11-----9-9-9-9-9-9-10----9-10-11---9-10-11-
|---9-9-9-9-9-9-10---9-9-9-9-10-11-----9-9-9-9-9-9-10----9-10-11---9-10-11-
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
|-0----------------0----------------0-0----------------0---------0---------

Or something like this... its kinda hard with no bass here to check.
