By request, this epic track from the  Futurama  sessions.  Again, this song was
probably written on piano, so it was challenging to tab.  Hope you enjoy it. 


Intro and theme: ( piano chords, lead guitar... ) Time signature is something 
weird like 9/4, I've put one extra beat in the second bar.  Easier to listen to 
and feel than to explain.

Etc, etc, descends into chaos and fades out, you should be able to figure out any missing parts using what you've learnt already. I will add some more info below. Additional: Practice this scale for part A solos, hammer-on/pull-off or slide as you wish, this is just a guide. Practice in reverse as well. Use first, second and fourth fingers for the 3-note-per-string parts. ___C_major_________________________________________________________

Guitar solos One and Two use the Ebm pentatonic/blues scale. Here's a typical example... ___Ebm___________________________________________________________________________

I have tried to arrange the verse piano part for guitar, you would need to use your thumb for the bass notes on the sixth string and play fingerstyle. Try to keep your first finger on the 3rd & 4th string on 12th fret, use your second finger for 2nd string 13th fret, so only your thumb and pinky change position. ___F_______________________________________________________________
