Firth of fifth

Genesis


Here's my attempt at a favorite Steve Hackett guitar solo from Genesis' "Selling England by the Pound," a classic from the Peter Gabriel era. This is the guitar solo in "Firth of Fifth." Genesis fans would probably agree that this is one of Hackett's finest moments. I'm not saying the tab is perfect. In fact, it's incomplete, and it's a simplified version. But it sounds pretty good along with the record. Send flames and other comments to bt16@andrew.cmu.edu. Standard tuning. /=slide up \=slide down (occasionally slide down to nothing) p=pull off h=hammer on v=vibrato (use liberally on this song) t=trill; I accomplish the trill on this song with my version of fret tapping, basically hitting the G string at the 4th fret and tapping it at the 7th fret with my right index finger. --14----------------------------------------------------------------- ------12---------------------------15/17--17--17--17\7--------------- ----------11/12\11----------12p11------------------------------------ --------------------12--14------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------- --10/12--12--12--12--12\3---15/17--17--17--17--17\7--12\3--5--7--8--- --------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------------------------------- -----------------------------------------10--12--14b15--14b15b14----- ---------------------12--13--12--10--12------------------------------ -4t7--7/9/11/12--14--------------------------------------------------
