Hi, I reckon this is a fairly accurate transcription of History of
Us. Unfortuneately, I've lent my copy of the tape to someone at the
moment, so I can't be sure that the picking patterns in the solo
and coda are exactly right, in fact they're probably wrong, but
they're pretty close anyway. The picking pattern for the verses is
slightly different each time round but I've only shown what happens
the first time - perfectionists should refer to the tape and work the
rest out themselves.
If anybody knows something about this that I'm not aware of like
funny tunings, feel free to correct it.
Enjoy yourselves,
Paul Hutchinson.
