Father of Mine
by Everclear

Legend:
> = slide
\ = indefinite slide
/ = rhythm slash
() = notes inside parentheses are not played every time
b9-r = prebend note, pick, then release bend
h9 = hammer on
17b = pick and bend

All bends are 1 whole step

! -  +  -
1 e and ah...

I'm pretty sure this is at least 90% correct

Tuning: down 1/2 step (or, more accurately, down 1/4 step)

That's the first verse. When you get to the slides, it switches to this:

1st chorus has no slides. That's it for the rhythm part. The rest is just fills and a solo. Fill #1 (end of 1st chorus)
