Carpet Crawlers  Genesis

Hey, this is my first Tab and one of my fav songs!
The song is basically D and Em on the verses and it, though it can be strumed,
sounds good when you play it like this.
[D] [Em]  
 e|---3--3--3--3--3--3--------------| You should listen to the song
 b|----2--2--2--2--2----------------| and try that against it. Played
 g|---------------------0--0--0--0--| at a paced speed it should work!
 d|--0--0--0--0--0--0----2--2--2--2-| Also use your fingers it helps!

The chorus is another story I can't see the finger picking working for a beginner
but try it on these chords. It works it just sounds strange if not worked on.
[F#m]The carpet crawlers heed their callers
[A]You got to get in to get o[G]u - - -[A]t
[A]You got to get in to get o[G]u - - -[Bm]t
[Bm]You got to get in [C]to get ou - - -[D]t
[F#m] [A] [G] [Bm] [D]  

Now here is the bit everyone loves about this song. The Steve Hackett bit when
it gets to, "You gotta get in to get out".
Also remember I have figured this out through the live versions but can be put
in the studio one just as easily.

Thank you very much for trying this tab. I doubt there are many with the Steve Hackett
bit but if you watch the video of Genesis Live zyou'll see how it done. Once again thank you.
