Song ends on E open and G (i think) pitched feedback. Window Paine from Gish Transcribed by Adam Morris From: benmo@deakin.edu.au (BENJAMIN JAMES MORRIS) This is another song that wasn't at Nevada, so here is my version. b=bend r-release bend h=hammer on p=pull off Standard tuning

* This is actually for bass, but it doesn't really matter. The x's are done by hitting all the strings with you palm above the pick-ups.

This took me hours to figure out and type up so if you are reading this now send me a message, even if you have nothing to say, I just want to know that people are getting it and maybe using and enjoying it. I think most of what I have here is right. Once again, PLEASE tell me what you think (good and bad). Any corrections gladly welcomed. Adam Morris
