Kyuss - Thumb tab

Artist: Kyuss
Song: Thumb
Album: Blues for the Red Sun
Year: 1992
Tuning: E Standard
Tabber: Martin Jørgensen
My own comment:
Since I bought this album I've allways dreamed about playing this song... I love. The
only thing about it is the C tuning and the Bass amp. I don't want to constantly retune
my guitar and i don't have a Bass amp. so. But anyway i've been learning fra other tabs
and i've been remaking it a lot. This is the result of my hard work. (or somthing like
that.) Well let's head further down the page to engange the tab :D

INTRO

The sound you can hear at during the start is feedback fra a bass or a guiter. My first
guess would be a bass. I Know it is hard to let the first not ring while playing the
rest but it is the only way you can play it if you want to do it in an E Tuning.

[Guitar I. clean:                                                        3x]
