Song Title: You oughta know
----------------------------------------------


You oughta know - Alanis Morissette
bass tablature
Tabbed by Visscher@alg.frg.eur.nl

For the rhythm, look at the + above the tab; it represents the beat (4/4 beat, and
the dots are 16th notes to help you with the counting). The lyrics are placed in the
bar in which they are sung, but they are not always correctly spaced in comparison to
the notes. So don't use the lyrics to figure out the rhythm, but use the +'s and
dots! Sometimes, when Alanis sings real fast, the lyrics under a bar consist of two
lines. This is indicated by `...' after the first line and before the second.
The tab will not be 100% correct, because Flea improvises the whole thing (I think).
I've tried to tab it the way I think Flea plays it, but I'm not always sure. Use your
imagination!
If you have corrections, suggestions better tabs etc, or if you enjoy my tab, please
mail to Visscher@alg.frg.eur.nl

Notation 🏷Legend: h = hammer on; p = pull off;
         / = slide up; *x* = pluck note x (hard)
