Violent Femmes - Blister In The Sun Text Bass Tab

Learn the song with the online tablature player
This is my absolutely perfect, note-for-note tab of “Blister
In The Sun” by the Violent Femmes, from their debut album. I tabbed
this because every single other tab of it is wrong.

Note: the ‘P’ in the chorus means pop that note with your middle
finger. The rest of the song is played with a pick.

Notes in parenthesis are implied or ghost notes.
