Matt Costa - Ballad Of Miss Kate Black tab


  Matt Costa
  Ballad of Miss Kate
  The Elasmosaurus e.p.

Ok, all the other tabs were pretty bad. So, I'm tabbing this up
correctly. Listen very carefully to the root notes he plays, I don't
bother playing the root notes because you can hardly hear them and
it mixes up your fingers. Also, Matt plays this song in a really weird
tuning. I think he tuned it so it sonds like a G chord when he plays all
6 strings open. Because, every time I see him in concert, he strums his
guitar completely open on some parts. AND HE DOESN'T HAVE A CAPO LIVE!!
   Everything in ( ) is an optional note that he DOES play.

h hammer-on
B bend
/ slide up
\ slide down
~ let it ring 
p pull off

Intro:

This is pretty much just a G chord being slid up and down.
And, there are two guitars on this part, so I combined them.
