  Song: Slowly Growing Deaf
  -------------------------

  I just figured out this tab one afternoon when I had assignments to do. If you
   want the guitar tab for this song, some other Australians have provided a
   marvellous interpretation of master Spruance's art, but I think their's is
   tuned down to a flat of my tab (incorrectly).

  Here is SLOWLY GROWING DEAF

  Then some computer sounds...
  Now play Part C,
  Followed by Part D

  Part F

  G---|-|-|-|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|----------------|

  When this bit gets repeated, include octaves in the gaps until the 7's on A
  (I'm guessing this is how it sounds heaver.)

  G-------------------------------------------------|
  D-------------------------------------------------|
  A-7---7---7---7---7-----7-7-7-----7---7---7---7---|
  E---0---0---0---0---0-0-------0-0---0---0---0-----|
  Part F is repeated.

  Now play Part B, followed by...

  G------------------------|----------------|----------------|

  A-0---0-6---5--X-5---X---|----------------|--------5-------|
  E----------------------5-|3-5-6-3-2-2-5-2-|0-2-3-5---------|

  G-------5-8-7-5----|-5---787-5-----|------5-6-7-8-9109-----|--9------|

  G-------------|----------|----|---|----|
  D-------------|----------|----|---|----|
  A-0---0-0-0---|----------|2---|---|----|
  E-------------|2---2-2---|----|---|1---| (Um, I think that last note was a 1)

  This one was exhausting but worthwhile, unlike the turd at the end of the song.
  Oh, and tell me where to get more MrBungle songs (ie demo tapes)!

  Transcribed by yet another blunder from Down Under emerging from the wormwood
   of society.
