* play Em with your 3rd & 4th fingers, then slide those upto the 4th fret


Bend notation :

x(y) fretted at x, pick and bend upto y

\
x(y)x fretted at x, pre-bent (to y), pick and release bend back down to x


h is a hammer on
p is a pull-off
sl is a slide
^v^v^v^v is tremolo (?with a wang bar)


I'm not at all sure about the C/F# and in theory, the Bs and As should all be
minor chords, but it doesn't sound right like that. Any suggestions welcome.
