Tabulature Legend
--------------------------------------------------

 -   = string (also serves as crude time marker: time on string)
 #   = frett (or equivalent pitch on string)
 h   = hammer-on
 p   = pull-off
 tr  = trill (rapid, consecutive hammer-ons and pull-offs)
 b   = bend (to indicated frett or 1/4 step if not specified)
 fb  = full bend (1 step or 2 frett pitches)
 hb  = half bend (1/2 step or 1 frett pitch)
 pb  = pre-bend (bend before striking)
 =   = hold bend or let note ring with substantial sustain
 r   = release bend (to indicated frett)
 ~   = vibrato (shallow, rapid bending)
 /   = slide up (if not indicated where, then to and from anywhere)
 \   = slide down (if not indicated where, then to and from anywhere)
 s   = legato slide (sound all notes in slide)
 S   = shift slide (sound only beginning and end notes by shifting quickly)
 ()  = muted note (indicates notes muted after striking them)
 x   = muted slash (pluck or "rake" string in a percussion manner)
 x\  = pick scrape (scratch pick across string surface)
 
Rythm Notations

 PM  = palm mute (mute string(s) while striking them)
 TP  = tremelo pick (pick very rapidly)
 T   = tap (with finger or pick)
 \n/ = tremelo bar dip where n= amount to dip
 \n  = tremelo bar down  where n= how far
 /n  = tremelo bar up  where n= how far
 /n\ = tremelo bar raise (don't try without a Floyd Rose Tremelo Bridge!)

We need more groovy songs like this one!

Whale song comming soon...
