Standard tuning

Comments: This is basically two riffs, the first in a variety of guises.
Throw in some fills, a solo and a blues turnaround ending and there¥s a 
song for you. I am a bit unsure about the penultimate chord though. IÂ¥ve
put down what I consider to be the most reasonable choice but I just don¥t
know.


Key:
/    = slide up
\    = slide down
b    = bend (whole step)
b^   = bend (1/2 step)
b^^  = bend (1 1/2 steps)
pb   = pre-bend
r    = release-bend
t    = tap with righthand finger
h    = hammer-on
p    = pull-off
~    = Vibrato
*    = Natural Harmonic
#(#) = Trill
**   = Artificial Harmonic
x    = Dead notes (no pitch)
P.M. = Palm mute (- -> underneath indicates which notes)
(\)  = Dive w\bar
(/)  = Release w\bar
Tp   = Tap w\plectrum
