Misc Computer Games - Pipe Dream Theme tab

NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) - Pipe Dream (by Lucasarts)
Tab version 1.3

Tuning: standard
Tempo: approximately 148 bpm
Guitar 1 = higher pitched melody
Guitar 2 = "bass"
h = hammer on
p = pull off
Double lines of '#'s indicate which two guitar parts go together, to avoid confusion.

i may have been able to slow this down to ensure accuracy in this tab, but i sure as
hell can't play it up to speed. So rest assured i'm not being smug when i say -- good luck!

As an alternative_to the 15th fret on the 2nd string, you could try using the 10th fret the 1st string. \Guitar 1 \e-------------------------------------------------------------------------|B-11-------13-------15-------11-------10-------15-------10-------15-------|G----12-------12-------12-------12-------11-------11-------11-------11----|D-------12-------12-------12-------12-------12-------12-------12-------12-|A-------------------------------------------------------------------------|E-------------------------------------------------------------------------| 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4
NOTE: It isn't necessary to learn the beginning this way because When you reach the end the loop and have to begin this melody again, it's more feasible to begin higher up on the neck. The alternate tab for the beginning of this melody is at the bottom of this tab.

########################################################################## ########################################################################## ########################################################################## ########################################################################## This is where the loop begins again. But there's one problem. i started out the bass on the 5th fret, and now you're on the 14th fret (or the 19th fret on the 4th string, if you substituted note for the last one in Guitar 1's part). Instead of sliding all the way back down to the 5th fret to begin the bass part again, you might try it this way instead:
