Ok now that there's all the technical stuff i'll tell you how it all fits together.:
First off you want to play with slight distortion with a bit of choruss.
Intro: Riff A, Riff B, Rhythm 1 Verse 1: Rhythm 2 (twice), Rhythm 1 Verse 2: Rhythm 2 (twice), Rhythm 1 Verse 3: Rhythm 2, Rhythm 1, Interlude, Solo (which i didnt include) Outro A: Riff B, Rhythm 1 (don't repeat) Outro B: Rhythm 2, Rhythm 1(twice), Interlude, Riff B
For those of you who are confused on which chords to use, here ya go.
G=320033 D=xx0232 A=x02220 E=022100
This is a *LOOSE* transcription to the song, ie: in certain areas you pick around with the chords. And yes i didnt transcribe the solo.

Well, this was published in Guitar or something a bit after I figured it out. Oh well, mine is very close, just not very orderly, but I've been too sick to care. If you listen to the song you should be able to figure out easily what goes where.

Piece of cake. I didn't do the middle part with all the incedental noises as it's too hard to hear what's going on.

My transcription of "Black Gold" by Soul Asylum. Done by ear, so if something just doesn't sound right.. well, hey. Whaddya want for free? Because I felt like it, I transcribed both guitars. If you want to fudge it for one (likely), play the acoustic part and you should do well enough. As usual, listen to the song for the correct timings as getting them all right on the tab is a royal pain in the ass. You'll find that the guitar parts are well-synchronized to the vocals so it shouldn't be too hard. {clean electric {------------------------2-2----2-2-2-----2---2---2------------------- {----------------------3-3-3----------3-----3---3---3----------------- {---------0-----0----2---2-2------------2-------------2--------------- {-------2-----0----------0-0------------------------------------------ {-0-2-3-----2-----0--------------------------------------------------- {--------------------------------------------------------------------- {

Sorry if it's confusing but except for the solo (which involves sound effects, a lot of feedback, and other fun stuff that you really can't reproduce in ASCII) it should be pretty close. Hope you enjoy it! David Braue
