"Unsheathed" by +Live+
from the album Secret Samadhi
Tab by Andy Adelewitz (

Really simple, actually. I tabbed it in standard tuning because
I'm too lazy to tune down a half step every time I wanna play a Live
song. If you're tuned down a half step, simply add 1 to every number
and you're all good.

The intro/verse riff is like this:

E-|----------------------------------------------------------------|B-|----1/4-step bend------1/4-step bend----------------------------|G-|---/---\--------------/---\-------------------------------------|D-|-8/-----\--6-------8/-------\---6----8---5b6r5b6---5------------|b6r5h6r etc.....A-|--------------6-------------------------------------------------|E-|----------------------------------------------------------------|
A second guitar strums down a G# (466544) here and there. At the end of the first verse, the heavy part comes in. Bsus2 G#5
After the third verse and staccato Bsus2's, it goes into the "Free love..." part. Play G#m - Am7 x3 then B5. G#m Am7 B5
That's it. That's all there is to it. I may be wrong on the G#m - Am7 progression, but that's as close as I could get. They may be using partial barre chords (577600), a trick they appear to have picked up on this album (like the F#7add4 in the Century verses). See if it sounds good to you this way.
