Old  Machine Head

Old by Machine Head
Notation:
nh - natural harmonic
ah - artifical harmonic or pinch harmonic (same thing)
~ - virbrato
p - pull off
/ - slide up these are used for normal
\ - slide down and ghost note slides
I have written the beat numbers under the notes on the down beats.
In general I tried to keep one dash '-' equal to a thirty-second note.
Thus,
 
 |-2---2---2---2--- are eight notes and
 |-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2- are sixteenth notes.

Tuning:
[1] [-] [E]  
[2] [-] [B]  
[3]4 [-]- [G]C# <---- *Notice* I know it's weird but trust me, this is it.
[5] [-] [A]  
[6] [-] [D]  
In addition, tune all strings a 1/4 of a step lower to match the album.

The nh (natural harmonic) slide thing starts at about 1.5 on the
fretboard.
These notes are played as sixtuplets. These means in one beat there are
six notes played.
