Joe Satriani - Light Years Away tab

Song only just came out and I havent quite worked everything out exactly yet but this is 
of it. Listen to the song for the timing etc. Key at the bottom for the symbols etc.


For the intro just basically hold a G note (doesn't really matter what one, just 
get some feedback off it)

Riff 1

E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------1--------------------1--------------------1----------------------------|
E|--3--1--3--1-----3--1--3--1--3--1-----3--1--3--1--3--1-----3--1--3--1--3--1~~--1-1-1-|
                                   x3

Then play it once more with it ending like this.

A|-------------------1-------------|
E|--3--1--3--1--3--1----3--1\3~~~--|


Riff 2


E|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------3-3--------------------------------|
G|-------3-5-5-3~--------------------3-3----------3-5-5-3~--------------|
D|--3h5--3-5-5-3~--3h5-5-3-5~----3h5---------3h5--3-5-5-3~--3h5-5-3-5~~-|
A|--3h5------------3h5-5-3-5~--5-------------3h5------------3h5-5-3-5~~-|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------------|

                                    x2


Riff 3

From what I can tell here there are 2 guitars harmonising with one playing low and the 
high, personally when playing along with the track I think doing the low sounds better 
I'll tab both.

Low:

E|---------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------|
G|-----3h5-5---3-5--3\5~~/3~-------------------------|
D|---5-------5------------------3h5-5---3-5--3\5~~---|
A|----------------------------5-------5--------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------|

E|-----------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------|
G|-----3h5-5---3-5--3\5~~\7/3~-------------------------|
D|---5-------5----------------------3h5-5---3-5--3\5~~-|
A|--------------------------------5-------5------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------|


High:


E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------11h13-13----11-13--11\13~~/11~-----------------------------------|
G|---12----------12--------------------------10h12-12----10-12--10\12~~--|
D|----------------------------------------12----------12-----------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

E|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------11h13-13----11-13--11\13~~\15/11~-------------------------------|
G|---12----------12--------------------------10h12-12----10-12--10\12~~-|
D|----------------------------------------12----------12----------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------------|


Riff 4

Like the last one, this has high and low.

Low:

E|----------------------------------------|
B|---------6~~----------------------------|
G|---3h5\7-----5~-3~~---------------------|
D|-----------------------3-5-3h5~~--5~----|
A|---------------------5------------5~----|
E|----------------------------------3~----|

                      x2

High:

E|------------13~~---------------------------------|
B|---11h13\15-------13~-11~~-----------------------|
G|------------------------------10-12-10h12~~------|
D|---------------------------12----------------5~--|
A|---------------------------------------------5~--|
E|---------------------------------------------3~--|


Riff 5

I'm not entirely sure on this one, but I think this is roughly it.

E|-----------------------------------------------|
B|--------8~~~--8~~~--10~-8~~--8~~~--8~~~--8~~~--|
G|--7~~~--7~~~--7~~~--9~--7~~--7~~~--7~~~--7~~~--|  Then Dive Bomb
D|--5~~~--5~~~--5~~~--7~--5~~--5~~~--5~~~--5~~~--|
A|--5~~~--5~~~--5~~~--7~--5~~--5~~~--5~~~--5~~~--|
E|-----------------------------------------------|


Play through riffs 1 and 2 again then we have the solo which I haven't worked out fully 
so I post that on here when it's completed. Although it's a good one to just jam out to 
G.


After the solo we go back through riffs 3, 4 and 5. Then back to 1 and 2 again.

For the ride out:

E|------------------------|
B|------------------------|
G|--7-7-7-8~~--8-8-8-7~~--|
D|--5-5-5-5~~--5-5-5-5~~--|
A|--5-5-5-6~~--6-6-6-5~~--|
E|------------------------|

           x2

E|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|11p10p-11p10p-11p10p-11p10p--10p8-10p8-10p8-10p8-10p8-10p8-10p8-10p8-11p10p-11p10p-11p10p-11p10p|
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

                               x4    On the 3rd time tap with the guitar pick on the 
fret for 10p8 and 15th fret for 11p10


E|------------------------|
B|------------------------|
G|--7-7-7-8~~--8-8-8-7~~--|
D|--5-5-5-5~~--5-5-5-5~~--|
A|--5-5-5-6~~--6-6-6-5~~--|
E|------------------------|

           x4


E|------------------------|
B|----------3-------------|
G|------3-5--------3-5----|
D|--5-5--------5-5-----5--|
A|------------------------|
E|------------------------|

            X5
