Joe Satriani – The Headless Horseman tab

The Headless Horseman by Joe Satriani, TAB'd by Arash Arjmandi (www.arshx.com)

Here is the tap-o-rama song Headless Horseman by Joe Satriani from
the excellent album "Not Of This Earth"

Joe recorded this song on a bass guitar I believe (Yes, I know you seen him
playing it on an electric in "Satch Tapes" but there you go :) The whole song
follows a basic pattern - I didn't put which hand you are meant to tap with
because ti would make my TAB look messy and basically there's one rule - all
12th fret taps are right handed, others are left (unless your left handed then 
vice versa)
I'd say learn the song in your head so you can practice without refering back to
the TAB and you can just concentrate on your method. Good luck - please email me
any requests, corrections - thanks are always welcome :) All my TAB is available
from my Satriani TAB page at http://www.sonic.net/mork/satriani.html, 
the best Satriani TAB resource on the net - keep watching!

Last of all thanks to Joe, thanks for your music :)
