I've been trying to figure out the simple yet elegant guitar part

that frames 'Tape', from 'Show', for a while, and I recently got it, and

hit myself for being so stupid beforehand. It is as simple as can be.

I had been trying to figure it out in standard tuning, but, since

the piece segues into 'Open', it of course uses the same Gm7 open tuning

as that song so the tones melt right into each other. It consists simply

of a 12th-fret natural harmonic arpeggio right up the strings, and then

the same exact thing on the 7th fret.

For those of you who may not have used harmonics, you just bar your

middle or index finger directly above the fret, with your finger *just*

touching the strings. Don't press down too hard, or you'll dampen them.

Here's the tab (the note indicated in front of each string is what that

string is tuned to) -




G -------------<12>-----------|----------<7>----------

F ---------<12>---------------|-------<7>-------------


G -<12>---[let ring]----------|-<7>---[let ring]------




P.S.: Sorry if I may have insulted the intelligence of some guitar players

out there by explaining all the terminology, but I assumed that those who

knew what I was talking about might have figured all this out on their

own anyway. This is pretty much meant for people like me who don't really

know guitar that well.
