Do You Want New Wave by Minutemen

Do You Want New Wave bass tab by Minutemen

Bass tabs

@Song: Do You Want New Wave (or Do You Want the Truth)?
Written by Mike Watt
Recorded by Minutemen on album "Double Nickles on the Dime" (SST)
File format: tab, btab
Transcription: Gary Von Colln

The main chords in this song are Bm and D. The Bridge is Fm. The
guitar part uses fast right hand picking or slow strums so that the
individual notes from the chords sound. Use your thumb and index
finger or thumb and middle finger to pluck the two strings for the
turnaround riff.

I have also tabbed the bass part.

Bm           D
A word war       will set off the keg.
My words of war     Should a word have two meanings?
What the fuck for?   Should words serve the truth?

Bm           D
I stand for language.  I speak for truth.
I shout for history.  I am the cesspool.
For all the shit    to run down in.

Bm           D (3x)

Bm A G A D (4x)
