Skid Row - Medicine Jar tab

Band: Skid Row
Album: SKID ROW
Song: Medicine Jar
Tuning: EADGBE (standard)

=================================================================================================================

Notes
+ Intro part 2/Chorus: There are two possible styles; maybe Dave plays one version and Scottie plays the other
  Go with what is comfortable.

+ Chorus: the last chord hammer-on is actually the start of the verse.
  It is played immediately before the first spoken lyric.
+ Lead lines: I gave it my best shot, but I know it is not even 90% correct.
  Please add fixes as you play through so we can get this 100% correct.
+ Rhythm Verses: same as the Intro. I took off the hammer-ons to keep the tab clean.
+ Solo and Intro Leads: Scottie uses an effect that I don't have access to,
  so I made my best guess as to the actual guitar note. My best guess is that the effect is an Harmonizer set at a 3rd+.
+ PH: means Pinch Harmonics
