NOTE on "5b(1/2)" in my tab:  The actual 5th fret marking is just a 
grace note.  The 1/2-step bend itself falls on the beat (usually).  
The Sixth fret markings in parentheses "(6)" means that you should
strike the note WHILE BENDING, meaning that you should strike the string
while the string is still bend up half a step.

I dunno if this tab will match up with the guitar tab on OLGA.  Never 
tried.  This is the way I play it with my band, and it fits just fine, both
playing live and along with the album.

Sorry if all of this is confusing.  Just follow the beat markings I added,
or (better yet) listen to the album for Chris's feel.  It's not the most

groove" kind of music, but it's just so raw and loud...IMHO, it's one of
the most powerful basslines :)

(Remember, LOUD and DISTORTED!)



Enjoy...
