My Mom Still Cleans My Room  MxPx

MxPx (Magnified Plaid)
-Life In General-
Copyright 1996 Tooth and Nail Records
Mike plays a lot of little riffs on his bass that
make MxPx bass lines pretty unique. I'll tab each
riff as we come to it, which means you should read
the whole file through before trying to play it ;)
PLEASE NOTE!!! Considering how fast Mike's fingers fly,
I won't put every single time he plays a note, but if you
listen carefully you should be able to figure it out.
(Sorry if this gets long, I'm trying to keep it narrow for
low-res users.)
