Yesterday Is Here   Yes


I transcribed this using the studio version from the GTR album.  There are multiple versions of this song available in a live format, but they don't vary too much from the original, and the technique is pretty much the same.  The studio version, as well as most of the other versions, was recorded on an electric 12-string.  Rather than tuning the low 'e' string down to a 'd', Steve tuned all the other strings up a whole step.  So on a 6 string, the tuning would be: E-B-E-A-C#-F# if you'd like to play along with the album.  Otherwise, it's much easier just to tune the low 'e' down to 'd'.

These next few bars are played rather loosely.  i.e. there are a lot of open notes and dead notes on the 4th & 6th strings that I didn't get too nit-picky in transcribing.

This downward run is not note-for-note since it's played rather fast and Steve didn't hit every note perfectly, but I'm pretty confident that this is what Steve was trying to play.  Although, I'm not sure about the last 10 notes of the bar.  There are a lot of shadows on the fretboard on the video, and I couldn't hear exactly what he was playing since there are so many open notes still ringing at this point.  Once again, any input would be welcomed.
