Minus The Bear - Broken China tab

tabbed by: kazearaneta@yahoo.com


This is Dave's (lead) part from "Broken China", a b-side from their upcoming album Omni. 
Personally, for me, it's one of the best b-sides I'll ever hear.


INTRO: crazy ass pitch shifting (from a Pitch Pirate)

Tap the fifth fret with your left hand
