Brad Paisley - Water tab

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
                        Brad Paisley - Water
                         Tabbed by Brandon 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

ATTENTION! READ THIS! VERY IMPORTANT!
This tab is not from a tab book! There were no correct tabs, or barely
any for that matter, so I learned the whole song by ear and transcribed
it for all of you to learn. This whole process took about a month, so 
I hope you can appreciate all the hard work that I have done for you.
One quick favor that I ask of you is to please check out my video of 
my guitar cover for this song. Doing that will mean so much to me.
ALSO, IT WILL GREATLY BENEFIT YOU TO WATCH IT BECAUSE THIS WHOLE TAB IS
BASED ON HOW I PLAYED THE SONG IN THE VIDEO! Thanks, and keep rockin'!

SOLO:
Brad uses a G-bender for the solo. My guitar does not have a G-bender, 
and I am assuming for the most part that yours does not either. That is 
why I have slightly modified how this solo is played, though it basically 
sounds the same.

Slide down gradually from the 17th fret while using 
alternate palm mute picking until you reach to about 
the 3rd fret.

BRIDGE:
Strum the muted strings in the form of sixteenth notes. 
Once again, check the video to see what the rhythm should
be like because there are pauses in between! Also, a wah
pedal is needed to achieve the correct sound. Start at the
heel and gradually push forward, ending up at your toes right
when this section is over. This lasts for four measures.

OUTRO (STEEL GUITAR SOLO):
I sort of made up the type of rhythm pattern that I used here, so you 
can check the video to see how I played it. Having said that, I will
just give you the notes, and you can go from there.

I had to improvise a little on this part because it was extremely
difficult to decipher. Therefore, use your ears if you think anything is off.

I just wanted to end by saying that Water is one of my favorite songs,

Enjoy and have fun!
