transcribed by: patrick schwemmer (pschwemm@mail.wiscnet.net)

 

 

guitar 1 & 2

vocals 1 & 2

 

tuning: Eb-Ab-Db-Gb-Bb-eb (1/2 step flat)

 

note: to minimize confusion, all notes

are written as they appear on the

fretboard, not as they are.

 

unusual tab symbols:

 

^^^^ (above line) = light vibrato (wiggle string up & down)

/\/\ (above line) = heavy vibrato (do it harder)

(.) (above line) = fermata (hold)
