Midnight Oil – Tin Legs And Tin Mines tab

By Midnight Oil
From the "Real thing" album
Tabbed by Jo

This is a very nice song from the Oils. The chord chart given down
there for the verses is a transcription  of the piano part.
The guitar actually only plays a few arpeggios on the basis of
these chords.

Intro part
The intro is made of  two patterns, only changing the bass note.
Let ring and listen to the CD to get the rythm right.
The structure is the following :

Pattern A (4 times)
Patten B
Pattern A (twice)
Pattern B
Pattern A (twice)
Then into the first verse...

Make sure you say about anything to match Garret's inspired speech...) Outro : repeat pattern A of intro Special chords : They are only used as variations on the basic chord B7* 7 9 7 8 9 7 B7** 7 9 7 8 10 7 That's about the best I can do about this song.
