Subject: TAB: Breaking Glass by David Bowie

 

David Bowie - Breaking Glass

from the album "Low"

1977

(written by David Bowie, produced by David Bowie and Tony Visconti)

 

Another tune from the excellent Bowie album "Low", this short

but sweet song consists of two basic guitar riffs. There are of course a

number of Eno sonic treatments not easily transcribed. Carlos Alomar does

not repeat the riffs exactly each time through, but the basics are here.

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.
