Subject: TAB: Breaking Glass by David Bowie

David Bowie - Breaking Glass
from the album "Low"
1977
(written by David Bowie, produced by David Bowie and Tony Visconti)

Another tune from the excellent Bowie album "Low", this short 
but sweet song consists of two basic guitar riffs.  There are of course a 
number of Eno sonic treatments not easily transcribed.  Carlos Alomar does
not repeat the riffs exactly each time through, but the basics are here.
Have a listen to the recording to get a feel for the song.  The tab written
here is merely a guide to get started in the right direction with the 
lead guitar.

Baby, I've been, breaking glass in your room again
Don't look at the carpet,  I drew something awful on it
