Subject: TAB: Speed of Life by David Bowie

 

David Bowie - Speed of Life

from the album "Low"

1977

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

 

>From the excellent Bowie-Eno "Trilogy" album "Low", this instrumental

consists of three basic guitar riffs. There are of course a number of

Eno sonic treatments not easily transcribed. 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.
