NOTES: In the tablature, I have tried to use spacing to represent the rhythm. However, as always, your best bet is to listen closely to the recording, especially since the ostinato soloing varies from verse to verse. Don't pay too much attention to my x's and when to slide, when not to slide, etc., those are just my personal mannerisms when playing the song. At first, I was going to transcribe the solo, but it is kind of... how do we put it... messy. It's entirely based on E pentatonic minor, though, and it would be no sweat for you to find your own version of his solo. As always, comments, questions, and gratitudes :) are welcome by e-mail... or if you want to tell me I f**ked up, that's ok too. :) Bye! -- Kevin Bourrillion, Semi-Official Caretaker and Consultant on Bodily Fluids. phlegm@cs1.bradley.edu phlegm@camelot.bradley.edu (309) 677-1193 --------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm not an actor, but I play one on TV.
