Here's some tablature I figured out a long time ago for a heavy metalish variant of the theme song from The Munsters TV show.

It's based on a little thing they used to play on Z rock back when Z rock was still on the radio.

It sounds best (to me) when played with lots of distortion. (Well, hell, I even play Good King Wenceslas with tons of distortion, so bear that in mind.)

Ok, here's the tab:


Riff 1:
--------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------
-------1-2-------1-2------1-2------1-2------
---0-0-------0-0------0-0------0-0----------

Riff 2:
-----------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
---------------------2--------------------0-2--
-2------0-1-2----3-2-0----2-0-5---0-------0-2--
-0--3-0-----------------------3-----3-2-0---0--


Riff 3:
-----------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------
--7-7-7---5---4-5-2-4-0------------------------------
--7-7-7---5---4-5-2-4-0-----7-7-7---5---4-5-2-4-0----
----------------------------7-7-7---5---4-5-2-4-0----
-----------------------------------------------------

Ending:
----------------------
----------------------
----------------------
--------------0---2---
--2-0---------0---2---
------3---0-------0---

I usually play something along the lines of:

  • Riff 1
  • Riff 2
  • Riff 1
  • Riff 2
  • Riff 3
  • Riff 2
  • Riff 2
  • Ending

There are definitely other variations of the Munsters theme song which are more faithful to the original, but this is my heavy metal way of playing it.
