Offspring tabs

Killboy Powerhead bass tab

This is a great song by a great band off one of the
greatest albums ever. It’s not too hard to figure out,
if my awesome precisely timed tab doesn’t give you the
right idea on how to play it, then listen to the song while
reading the tab, and you definitely should get it.

Band: The Offspring
Album: Smash
Song: Killboy Powerhead
Bassist: Greg Kriesel

Tuning: Standard
Count: 4/4

~ = let ring
R = rest
h = hammer-on

Verse x1 (let last note ring)


So that’s it. There are different ways to play it, like
playing the verse on the A string (so that the starting
fret is the 7th). This will give you a different tone, but I
think the way I tabbed it out is the accurate tone to what
Greg plays, but if you think not, play it however you want.
