Old Man Sam By Spiderbait This is a bass tab but the guitar is exactly the same as the bass basically. All you have to do to play this on guitar is play all the riffs the same except the parts which are marked WITH HEAVY DISTORTION for these parts just play the power chords for the note written for the bass. For example say the note for the bass is G-|---------- D-|---------- A-|---------- E-|----3----- Then the guitar just plays this E-|--------- B-|--------- G-|--------- D-|----5---- A-|----5---- E-|----3---- If you need any more help just contact me at Ridza@hotmail.com Guitar Intro -|--------|--------------------------||-----------------------------------------
