    I searched all over and couldn't find a bass tab for this song (only the very start which i did by ear anyway). I know you can get the tab in the Zappa book, so I figure someone must have the tab out there.

    Anyone know where I can find it?

    I have like the first 30 seconds down.

    The main riff is: E-G-B-D, D-B-D-A, A-B-A (these are the second octave of the first notes)

    The walk before the solo is: G-A-E

    The solo starts out pumping a D note.

    This probably would be better suited for the Tablature forum.

  5. I love Apostrophe (the album in general). Stinkfoot is one of the funniest songs I've ever heard, that whole bit with the dog is great. Camorillo Brillo, St. Alphonso, the whole album is great.
    BTW--Who played guitar on this album?

    "Camarillo Brillo" is on the "Overnight Sensation" album, which is also a great album and highly recommended. Maybe you have the CD with both albums on it?

    Ha-Ha...Good one!
  7. Whoops. Don't even know why I said that. I just have Apostrophe, but it's a burned version I got from a friend so I guess he just snuck it in there for some reason.

    Anybody know how play St. Alphonso? I heard it was one of most difficult songs from that album.
