Subject: TAB: Speed of Life by David Bowie

David Bowie - Speed of Life
from the album "Low"
1977
(written by David Bowie, produced by David Bowie and Tony Visconti)

From the excellent Bowie-Eno "Trilogy" album "Low", this instrumental 
consists of three basic guitar riffs.  There are of course a number of
Eno sonic treatments not easily transcribed.  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.
