Hooray! That's the end of that depressing song!
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
b = bend (to indicated frett)
pb = pre-bend (bend before striking)
r = release bend
~ = vibrato
X = string noise
() = mute (after striking)
^ = harmonic (if there were any :( but you can add some)
This post is to fill that gap where there is no song. I could hardly play it
so I know something's wrong. Someone should consider re-doing this whole thing.
I wrote it on four hours of sleep and I'm feelin' a little woozy. Cheers!
