Down By The Borderline

Tim Buckley

Artist: Tim Buckley Song: Down on the Borderline Album: Starsailor Tabber: Daniel "HanMeGitarren" Widegren
This is the last track on Starsailor, and just like the majority of the songs on starsailor, the guitar is based on a riff and then improvises around it.
The song is basicly a trumpet solo in the beginning and then this riff kicks in and is played througout the song.
E|----------------------------| B|----------------9--11---11--| G|----8-10p8h10---8--10---10--| D|-10-------------------------| A|----------------------------| E|----------------------------| The main riff has many variations but these are played numerous times.

E|---------------------------| B|----------------9--11---11-| G|----8-10-12\10--8--10---10-| D|-10------------------------| A|---------------------------| E|---------------------------| E|---------------------------| B|----------------9--11---11-| G|----8-10-10-----8--10---10-| D|-10------------------------| A|---------------------------| E|---------------------------| That's it, really simple song, fun to play along to, you can practise your improvisation real good.
