 Drop-D down a whole-step


 Comments: Monster tuning time. There have been plenty of requests for this


 one and it's a great song so I'm not surprised. I think there will be some


 puzzled, and maybe even disppointed, players out there though; this thing


 is a bitch. The actual rhythms and fingerings are relatively easy, but the


 tuning is murder. You'll need telephone-poles for strings in order to pull


 this one off (I used a set of .013's on a Maison dreadnought) because this


 just won't stay in tune. Hit the low E (now low C) just a tad too hard and


 you're out of tune. Playing instructions are few, just let ring as much


 as possible. I'm not quite sure about the F-chord in Rhy. Fig 4; it sounds


 good with the album but hasn't got quite the ring you'd expect when played


 by itself. When there are a- and b-forms the a's are on the left and the b's


 are on the right. Rhy. Fig 4 is panned dead center as is the solo. Rhy. Fig


 4 is played by a very damped or muted instrument. I can't be sure but at


 times it sounds a little like a banjo. Wouldn't bet on it though.


 Key:


 / = slide up


 \ = slide down


 b = bend (whole step)


 b^ = bend (1/2 step)


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


 pb = pre-bend

 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
