WISHLIST-Live (Perth, Australia, 23rd Feb, 2003)

 

**NB: The Wishlist tab by Pat Giles (@ www.olga.net) was used for some of this tab.**

 

Standard tuning - low to hi - EADGBE

 

Note: The lead guitar parts can be played several different ways on

various parts of the fretboard.

 

Chords:

**NB: I think it sounds better if you use barrel/power chords, so i will list them as well.**

 

C: X32010 or c: 335533 }Instead of just strumming the chords, try picking

F: X33211 or F: 133211 }a few notes (strings) in between. This is not

G: 320033 or G: 355433 }essential but i think it gives a nicer sound.

}Just pick what ever sounds nicest to you!!

Tab notations:

 

h = hammer-on

p = pull-off

/ = slide up

\ = slide down

~ = hold/shake note

I wish I was a neutron bomb, for once I could go off,

 

I wish I was a sacrifice, but somehow still lived on,

I guess it never stops.
