Verve - Sit And Wonder tab

Artist-The Verve
Song-Sit And Wonder
Album-Forth
Writer- McCabe, Jones, Salisbury, Ashcroft
Tabbed by S. McNally


There are multiple guitars in the song, so I tried to tab the stuff that was most prominent.
Throughout the song, McCabe uses a lot of effects, but reverb is the most common I believe.

Legend
\ = Slide down
()= Background guitar sounds not very prominent in mix
h = hammer on
p = pull off
b = bend
r = release


Intro (screeching effect caused by pick)
