    dunno if you've tried already, or even if they have the correct tab....but try mxtabs.net, activebass or tabcrawler.

    or you can always buy a pearl jam tab book.

    Along with the sites mentioned by Toony, you can look at www.basstabz.com. You can also try typing "Pearl Jam tablature" or "Pearl Jam bass tablature" into your search engine and seeing what it can come up with.
     
  5. I have tried all those sites and i even typed pearl jam tabs in a search none and i dont have the money at the moment to get a tab book...\

    Your time to act is now! Tabs have to come from somewhere, don't they? Take some time and see if you can tab it out yourself. Even better, try and tab it out AND write it in standard notation. Either way, you'll help develop your ear and gain valuable experience listening to and figuring out songs.
     
  7. A good tool to help you tab things out is called TabIt from www.tabit.net. Its a program that plays back tabs you write in so you know wheater or not you're doing it right.
     
  8. I agree with Superduck - tab it yourself. I mean, If you have tabs and you know they're wrong, then you are halfway there. Use your ears some more and figure it out yourself.

    You can use the program slow blast to help you tab it out.
     
  11. Would you happen to have a link for this? I'm always lookin for these kind of things.

    I haven't heard the Pearl Jam version lately but the original version of "Last Kiss" from the 60s only had FOUR NOTES in the bass line so unless Jeff Ament is doing his best Jaco impersonation, it can't be THAT HARD to come up with the line :rolleyes:

    .............figure it out by ear.

    Do you have to have a MIDI card to hear the tab that you write?
     
  16. Yes.

    the tab there is correct, its just the timing is weird...if you play it for a little while you will get the hang of it

    You need a soundcard with onboard wavetable sounds or if it doesn't have wavetable (like most pro cards) an additional softsynth program.

    A midi card usually is the name for a PC card consisting (only) of a midi interface that is used to connect external midi gear (synths, samplers) with the computer.
