Drop-D tuning down a whole-step


Comments: A monster of a tuning this. I recommend a set-neck guitar or a
through-body. String it with at least 11s otherwise the low E-string (now
C-string) will go out of tune in a second. Rhy. Figs 1a and 1b seem to be
backwards as are Riffs 2, 3a and 3b. They have been notated here as they
sound.

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
