 FALL ON ME   BY   KING'S X

                        from Gretchen Goes To Nebraska

Transcribed/Deciphered by Brian King

Notes:  I have made this transcription for one guitar.
There is an alternate fill in the third verse. I have included
timing notes above the staff, using the standard system of
1e&a 2e&a 3e&a 4e&a, where each one is a sixteenth note (or rest.)
Therefore, 1&2&3&4& means straight eighth notes, and 1234 means
straight quarter notes.  The numbers coincide with the onset of
a note or rest.  Triplets are noted by: 1 b c, 2 b c... where each
note is a third of a beat.  The time signature for Fall On Me is
4/4, noted at the beginning of each staff.  NOTE:  STANDARD TUNING.
Have fun.  My Internet address is: gt6851a@prism.gatech.edu.
Call me if you need help.  Does anyone want a BASS TRANSCRIPTION for
this song?  If so, let me know...
