TAB Key -------- / - slide up \ - slide down X - mute with palm of picking hand U - upstroke D - downstroke () - incidental note ~ - hold note harm - harmonic rake - exagerate the strumming of the chord (but not enough for it to be an arpeggio) Notes ------ This song is in 4/4 time, and uses 2 Guitars. The intro voicings are based on an open A-shape, slid up and down the neck. The scraping noises are achieved by scraping the plectrum up and down the strings. The guitar sound (for Guitar1) is slightly distorted - too much distortion will make this section 'mushy'. The verses are made up of 2 guitar parts. Guitar1 plays partial bar chords, based upon the open A-shape, at the 3rd and 5th positions. Guitar2 plays muted root notes and power chord versions of the bar chords, based upon the open E-shape, at the 8th and 10th frets. The choruses consist of power chords and a 5 bar riff. The bridge makes extensive use of Bar chords. Verticle lines above the TAB stave show the rhythm pattern used. The picking patterns in the bridge, bars 10-17, are based around the moveable E-shape at the 8th and 10th frets. This has been shown as a 2 guitar part, because of the way the notes are allowed to ring over each other - it is possible to approximate this part with one Guitar. The noise section lasts 38 bars and is a more extreme version of the intro. I haven't tabbed it out, but use the Intro as a guide to what you could do here. Use plenty of string scrapes, and also the pickup selector to switch between pickups, creating a rhythmic effect. The outro is based on bars 3 and 4 of the chorus - but played in a staccato style.
