Joe Satriani - Overdriver tab

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
			     OverDriver - Joe Satriani

Tabbed by: Lord Strange

This is the basic outline of the song. I haven't tabbed all the crazy guitar solo
bit (make up your own!), but this is the basic
structure of the song as best I can hear it. The Lead bit is an approximation.
Hope this helps someone figure out what is really going on.
