Tabbed by: Les Gibson

Tuning: Standard

Although the parts are quite simple, there's LOADS of improv going on here,
especially towards the end,
mainly on the basic E major scale.

Roger Waters plays most of this; ive tabbed it how he plays it on the record,
so that's mostly sliding up and down the same string when playing the
2nd guitar part.

This is a very rhythmic song, and as standard tab cannot convey rhythm, it is
sometimes hard to read. Here, if the measure for guitar 2 appears longer than
guitar 1 sometimes, it isn't, i just couldn't fit it in! Listen to the song
to get a full sense of rhythm.

Here goes, then...

--INTRO: fade in (bird sounds, which i CANNOT tab). Two acoustics

There is another guitar basically repeating the second part from the last chorus, for about 10 seconds, then it fades out. Please rate this, or comment! (especially if you find any small mistakes, which I will correct ASAP).
