Standard tuning


Comments: This song is strangely modal, so much so, I can't even figure out


what mode. The chord sequence is obviously based on the E-minor scale but


every chord is a major which does not fit comfotably in any mode I know.


But then again, who cares ? It sounds good. If it hadn't been for the


excessive whammy bar stuff in the solo I would have said Ace, some of the


stuff played are pretty close to his. In reality, it's probably a hired


gun. (For some reason the solo is very low in the mix on the Remastered CDs.)


Key:


/    = slide up


\    = slide down


b    = bend (whole step)


b^   = bend (1/2 step)


b^^  = bend (1 1/2 steps)


pb   = pre-bend


r    = release-bend


t    = tap with righthand finger


h    = hammer-on


p    = pull-off


~    = Vibrato


*    = Natural Harmonic





**   = Artificial Harmonic


x    = Dead notes (no pitch)


P.M. = Palm mute (- -> underneath indicates which notes)


(\)  = Dive w\bar


(/)  = Release w\bar


Tp   = Tap w\plectrum
