Porcupine Tree - Wake As Gun I tab

"Wake As Gun" by Porcupine Tree from the previously rare "Insignificance" released in 1997. 
Now available as a bonus disc with the 1996 album "Signify".

TUNING: Drop D (DADGBe)

The only reason this song is in Drop D is because of a hammer on from D to E on the first chord. 
If you want, you can just ignore that hammer on and play the song in standard. Just move 
everything on the low E string down two frets.


CHORDS:
Em -        222000
F#7 sus4 -  444x00

F#7 -       442322

All the tabbed parts in this song are actually played on a koto, but work out just fine on guitar.
