For those of you watching Jules Holland New Year’s Eve’s bash who were blown away by
Steve’s performance on his 3 string guitar (his 3 Trance Wonder), here’s a simplified tab
one of his keynote songs, Cut My Wings, tabbed from the Belladrum Festival (see 'You
 Tube' to watch the vid).  I’ve tried to come up with a simple way of reproducing this without
ripping off 3 of your strings.  Basically, downtune your 5th string and ramp up your 6th string
so you have two bass G strings.  It then kind of works as a hybrid open G tuning but, if
you watch the video, you’ll see there’s a lot of improv around this as well.  Guitar and amp 
should be loud with some distortion to get the authentic 'messy' effect.  If anyone can
improve on this, please do

Tuning: Tune 6th string up 3 semitones and the 5th string down 2 semitones

Here’s the main tab covering the basic guitar accompaniment

Here’s the basics of the slide part, but as with anything like this, play around to make sound as you want it to
