Tablature Explanation: h = hammer on p = pull off b = bend to following note (if no note follows, bend 1/4 step) r = return from bend / = slide up \ = slide down From the transcribist: This song had a load of timing changes in it, so watch out. This is one of my favorite songs by Blind Melon and it took a lot of time to write it out, but virtue is its own reward. Ha, ha. _________________________________________________________
