>From the excellent Bowie-Eno "Trilogy" album "Low", this instrumental consists of three basic guitar riffs. There are of course a number of Eno sonic treatments not easily transcribed. Have a listen to the recording to get a feel for the song. The tab written here is merely a guide to get started in the right direction with the lead guitar.
