Just by Radiohead

Bass tabs with lyrics

"Just" by Radiohead

tabbed by John Kavalhuna
[email protected]

I've seen the bassline for this song butchered all over the internet
with either WRONG NOTES (following the guitar instead of the bass),
missing obvious open notes, etc.

Here's my interpretation of it, and in my opinion, the correct one.

***This is definitely not the "easy" version of this song, but it's not
exactly the "hard" version either.

If you want to play this song casually, you're reading the wrong tab.
If you want to learn this song for real, pick up your bass, and lets get
started.

To get the rhythm down, I suggest playing along with the cd (or mp3)
a few times. It's too hard (and confusing) to imply rhythm in a guitar
tab.
(Guitar starts alone for one measure, then the rest of the band
starts)

There you go! I know it's a lot to remember, but it's really not that
difficult. You just have to remember which parts go where.

Feel free to post this somewhere else if you choose to, but please give
me the credit for writing it out. It took me a long time to complete.
