Jumpman by Buckethead
from Monsters and Robots

tabbed by Chris Moss

this song is based around one guitar loop and has flanged guitar on the main riff. not much mind you, just enough. I didn't even try to tab the guitar solos, as you can tell they're pretty impressive and hard to understand. just unleash yourself around e on 15 the fret and
go as high as you want and tap. if you want a brilliant lesson on how to "buckettap" go look
on the Ballad of Buckethead tab, Doug Cartwright did a good job. with the cut off switch if
you play with a Gibson style of guitar, just turn off the volume to a humbucker and toggle between the dead and working humbucket-er. s'all, stay safe until next time.

(1:58 to 2:10) with the open g ringing, press the cut off switch in the same rhythm as heard..
e||------||
b||------||
g||--0~--|| think "something like a phenomenon" as you cut the sound

b||---------------|-----------------||
g||--4-4-44-4--5--|--4-4-44-4-------||
