																				Frances The Mute
By: The Mars Volta
Found on "The Widow" single
Bassist: Juan Alderete
Tuning: Standard (EADG)

One of my favorites out of the FTM songs. If they cut out most of the 
ambience (including the stuff in this song), they could have easily 
placed it on the album.
Intro: Ambience (No bass)

Part 1 (The part where the actual music comes in)
G|---------------2~----4--------| x1 before verse
D|-2~----4-5~------------2~-----| x8 for verse
A|------------------------------| x2 for solo leading into acoustic
Note: ~ = Let Ring


Acoustic Part (No bass)

Part 2 ("This never happened...")
D|------------------------------------------------------------| continue
A|-------------------------------------------5--3-3-----------|  below

D|----0-2-4-2-4-0-2---------4-5-4-0-0-2-2------4------4-----2-0| x4

Note: I can't hear any prominent bass part, so I decided to just configure
the chorus of nibbleschew's FTM guitar tab for the bass. Please leave a
comment if you hear any other bass in the chorus.

Outro: Sarcophagi (No Bass)

Thank you and enjoy.
