Teardrop

Massive Attack


Okay the main ostinato pedal you can hear on this piece is actually played on a harpsichord but
there is a way on the guitar that you can emulate that sound.

Hold this chord (use your thumb for the first note)
e|0                                     e|-----0---------0------0-----------|
B|5                                     B|-----5---------5------5-----------|
G|7                                     G|---------7---7------------7---7---|
D|7                                     D|---7---7---7--------7---7---7---7-|
A|0                                     A|-0----------------0---------------|
E|5    Then play this pattern:          E|-5----------------5---------------|


It's played repeatedly throughout the whole song with the exception of some instrumental breaks
with drum fils. The chords and lyrics are below. These are played over the top of the above pedal.

 Gentle impulsion, Shakes me makes me lighter, Fearless on my breath
