Subject: TAB: Switch 625 by Def Leppard

Here's my version of Def Leppard's Switch 625.

                      SWITCH 625 - by Def Leppard

                     (From the album High 'n' Dry)

Tabbed by Ronaldo Cordeiro.

Notation:

~      vibrato
/      slide up
\      slide down
<12>   harmonics
6b(7)  bend up to note between brackets
^      hammer-on / pull-off
/////  tremolo picking

The song begins with two guitars. The first guitar repeats the 4 bar pattern
below 4 times:

Guitar 1. Distorted tone. Let ring.

(*) Guitar 2 enters at this point: 1st. time 2nd. time (Natural harmonics) triplet feel

Repeat the progression below 4 times varying the last bar as indicated:

There are many alternate ways to play the next part. I usually try to keep the ascending notes on the same string to make slides easier.

In the next part the guitar is doubled but the recording wasn't clear enough to me, so I tabbed only the main guitar:
E :----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|B :-----10---11-13-11----|-----10---11-13-11----|-----10---11-13-11----|G :-------------------12-|-------------------12-|-------------------12-|D :12--------------------|12--------------------|13--------------------|A :----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|E :----------------------|----------------------|----------------------|

E :-------10-------------|B :------11-----13-11----|G :-----12---12-------12\|D :13--------------------|A :----------------------|E :----------------------|
Now repeat this 3 times (you've seen this before):
E :-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|----------------|B :-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|----------------|G :-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|----------------|D :----5~-----------|----3~-----------|----1~-----------|----------------|A :--5--------------|--3--------------|--1--------------|------------3-2-|E :3--------3-3-3-3-|3--------3-3-3-3-|3--------3-3-3-3-|3-3-3-3-3-1-----|
Finally the ending section. I'm not sure about the faster notes but I think the structure is correct:
E :-----------|--------------------------------|-------------------------|B :-----------|3-------3-----3-----3-----3-----|3-----3------------------|G :-----------|5b(7)---5b(7)-5b(7)-5b(7)-5b(7)-|5b(7)-5b(7)r5-3----------|D :--X\-------|--------------------------------|----------------5~-------|A :--X\-------|--------------------------------|-------------------------|E :-----------|--------------------------------|-------------------------|
