    Ok... I just heard Palm Grease for the first time and the bass is amazing. Does anyone have the tab? :bassist:

    Saw this thread while trying to find out whether the drums are in 9 + 7/8 or 4/4 (found it transcribed in 4/4 and settled for that), and apologies in advance for bumping an almost 5 year old thread.

    Well at least this is how I play it. You'll need to listen to the song and figure out the parts, and I haven't written out any of Paul Jackson's genius variations.
