Alexander's Lament
by Heart of Cygnus from the album Utopia
Tab by Danny Mendoza

Acoustic Guitar (F Bb Eb Ab C f)        Legend:
                                        h = hammer on     p = pull off
  Em:[022000]        Dsus4:[xx0233]
  C: [x32010]        Em7:  [022033]
  G: [320033]        Cadd9:[x32033]
  D: [xx0232]        Dsus2:[xx0230]

For simplicity's sake the chords are given as their regular shape when the guitar is 
half a step up, or using a capo on the first fret.

The intro and outro riffs are played using tap harmonics while fretting an Fm (Em shape 
the capo on 1st). To sound a tap harmonic, you fret the note that you want to hit, and 
tap the fret wire 12 frets above that note. I have indicated the fret you want to
tap using a capo.
