3. Chorus from "High 5 (Rock The Catskills)"

Really, since the Odelay tab book is authorized by Beck, it is more valuable as a semi-proper lyric sheet than as a play-along. Right here, I always thought he said "Rockin' the Catskills like a man from the Catskills." I stand corrected and, frankly, kind of disappointed.

2. Coda from "Hotwax"

Keeping in mind the awesomeness of somebody being paid to transcribe this sample, I only have one comment and complaint here. Immediately after the male voice says "I came here to tell you about the rhythms of the universe," there should be a notation for "sweet conga fill."
