Steve Vai – Blowfish tab

                             <-BLOWFISH by STEVE VAI->
                           <-from the album FIRE GARDEN->

This song is played with a double pitchshifter, one pitch is one octave
below and the other is one octave above. I think it is played straight
through a Digitech 2101 with loads of compression.

Iwrote this from out of my head without a guitar so errors are
bound to be in there somewhere....hope it's useful anyway.
