 Tuned down 1/2-step


 Comments: Now this is a good song. Paul had a special tendency around this


 time (and the early 80's) to use the third even when playing through some


 serious distorsion. It is a little harsh on the ears at times, but here it


 gives the song character. Riff 2 is played, as you can see, by two guitars,


 both using E-bows. It's a mechanical device that you put against the string


 (just one at a time) and there are little wheel-like structures that spin


 on the string causing it to resonate as long as there's contact. This means


 that you don't have to pick the string which is why I've used slides in the


 tab.


 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
