Genesis - Cinema Show tab

CINEMA SHOW From "Selling England By the Pound"

words and music by Genesis

TAB transcribed by Gordon Ranney

This tuning is for 12-string, and is the correct, original tuning
(according to a "Guitar Player" interview with Mike Rutherford.)
Actually, he sort of mentioned it offhand, and I went from there
to derive the full, correct tuning, checking it against the record.  

Tune the high string of the 4th pair of strings (D) down to A, so
the notes form a fifth.  Tune the high string of the 3rd pair (G) 
down to E, so the notes form a sixth, thusly:

	1st	E
	2nd	B
	3rd	G/e
	4th	D/a
	5th	A
	6th	E
