Hello All,

My brother recently put me onto these guys by giving me the before the amps

interpretation of it down. Here it is, questions or comments to:
bjmcnamara@dodo.com.au

your own thing in C minor and you'll get close.

[Pre Verse] 

Intro/Verse Chords With hammer ons on the notes above the bar and a slide
from the 1st to the third Fret on the A string (5th) on the Csus - can be a
stretch - can do the same C on the 8th fret for this part and just slide
from the 6th Fret to the 8 on the E string. 

Csus, Fm, A# Csus (with slide X 2)
Csus, Fm, A#, Csus into Verse

A#                  Csus

[Solo]

Fm Csus G (two measures of the G) X 3

Play the Csus hammered on on every 8th or so during the breakdown solo

hey hey what a shame
all you ever do is blame


[Outro] Same as the Pre Verse - Hammer on the Csus and Fm and do the 2
slides up to the 3rd fret on the A string (5th) on the Csus in the middle -
End on the Csus

Csus, Fm, A#, Csus (with the 5th string slides)  

Csus, Fm, A#, Csus 

Thats it!

Peace
