PRIMUS - Making Plans For Nigel

I'm glad someone finally started putting PRIMUS tabs in here. I would have
put some in a long time ago but since no one else had I figured that there
weren't many Primus fans out there who played guitar. But hey, who cares Ler
kicks Ass! Just as much as Les or Herb, so heres the first tab that I'm going
to contribute: Making Plans For Nigel off of the Miscellaneeous Debris EP.

I added the rythm so if you can't understand that stuff disregard the
doodling above the TAB:

q = quarter note 1 beat)

8 = 8th note (Half beat)

Rst = A chord diagramA augmentedA rest

q+8 = quarter note plus an 8th note (1 and a half beats)

h = half note (2 beats)

h+8 = half note plus an 8th note (2 and a half beats)

h+q = half note plus quarter note (3 beats)

OTHER STUFF:

h = hammer

p = pull

It starts off with just drums and then the Bass and Guitar enter. for the
first part the guitar Ler just plays one riff repeatedly (I'll call it Riff
A chord diagramA augmentedA):

     Rst    q          h

A chord diagramE MajorE)-------10---10----
A chord diagramBB)-------10---10p8--

For the next part Ler switches riffs to What I'll call Riff B:

          8     q    q+8     q

A chord diagramE MajorE)----7----------------
A chord diagramBB)--------8---10--p8--

After playing that a few times he plays this once (hell, why not call it riff
A chord diagramC majorC):

           h     h     h       h

A chord diagramE MajorE)-----------I-----------
A chord diagramBB)----7---8--I-9---10---

Then he plays riff A chord diagramBB twice:

and then this (Riff A chord diagramD MajorD) twice:

          q        h+q

A chord diagramE MajorE)-------------------
A chord diagramBB)----6----6h7-------

And the he repeats it all until after riff A chord diagramC majorC at the bridge when he plays this
(lets call it riff A chord diagramE MajorE) twice every third measure:

Rest  q     h

A chord diagramE MajorE)---5---5-------
A chord diagramBB)---5---5-------

after playing that a while the guitar and bass stop for a breif drum segment
and then after Les Screams, he and Ler enter, Ler playing Riff B.

THen the guitar and drums stop and Les does a little solo, then they all play
together till the end, Ler playing Riff A chord diagramBB twice, then Riff A chord diagramD MajorD twice, then Riff
A chord diagramBB twice, etc. etc.

to sum it all up:

drum openning

Riff A chord diagramA augmentedA a zillion times

Riff A chord diagramBB a few times

Riff A chord diagramC majorC once

Riff A chord diagramBB twice

Riff A chord diagramD MajorD twice

Riff A chord diagramA augmentedA a zillion times

Riff A chord diagramBB a few times

Riff A chord diagramC majorC once

Bridge: Riff A chord diagramE MajorE a few times
drum interlude

Riff A chord diagramBB a zillion times
bass solo
Repeat 2 riff B's, then 2 riff D's a zillion times
fade away

Send Praises of worship and death threats to me
