Here are five of the custom tabs added to FATpick this week.
She may be better known today for Portlandia, the sketch comedy series she co-created and co-starred in with Fred Armisen, but in the 1990s Carrie Brownstein was on the vanguard of the “riot grrrl” movement as guitarist and composer for the indie favorite Sleater-Kinney.
“Start Together” is a track from Sleater-Kinney’s fourth studio album, The Hot Rock, released in 1999.
The FATpick tablature for “Start Together” includes two tracks, each for guitar tuned to C# F# B E G# C#.
Like the whammy-bar on mullet-haired front-man Les Claypool's bass, Primus’s first-ever single “John the Fisherman” is an iconic representation of their unique sound.
The FATpick rendition of “John the Fisherman” includes two playable tracks, Claypool’s slap bass and Todd Hirth’s guitar. An audio track for Tim Alexander’s drum part rounds out the trio.
“Otherside” is the third single from the Red Hot Chili Peppers 1990 album Californication.
The tablature for “Otherside” shared on FATpick includes three playable tracks - two guitar tabs in addition to tabs to Flea’s bass, and a full but audio-only percussion track.
“Teenage Riot” from 1988’ Daydream Nation is among their best and most accessible tracks.
FATpick's “Teenage Riot” includes playable tablature for lead and rhythm guitar (tuned to G G D D G G and G A B D E G, respectively), bass guitar (standard tuning) and even the vocal track transcribed for guitar (in the standard tuning).
Though it breaks the classic 90s rock pattern as the only 21st century song in the group we round out this week's list with the chart topping “All of Me” by John Legend.
FATpick's “All of Me” tablature transcribes Legend's piano for a six-string guitar in the standard tuning.
