"Time"
Blind Melon
from the album Blind Melon
Words by Shannon Hoon
Music by Blind Melon

transcribed by Travis Miguez (tre@unixg.ubc.ca)

Other transcriptions done by me: Still Remains -S.T.P.
			   All the Things I Wasn't - Grapes of Wrath

*Blind Melon riffs are hard to transcribe so I just did the bulk of the song so it sounds good if you play 
on an acoustic guitar.  The end of the song is anybody's guess and I have never heard it done the same 
twice so improvise or just end it on the Am chord.
