By-Tor and the Snow Dog: Tablature

By Jimmy Pena (jimmy@walrus.com)

Excerpted from Ultimate Guitar.

This tab is not 100% correct. Feel free to fix it. Standard
tuning [EADGBe] (low to high). The key signature is D, but it appears to
change to E in the middle, then back to D at the Epilogue.

| = not a standard bar line; just used to separate music
~ = vibrato or held note
x = percussive note with no pitch; muted note
h = hammer on
p = pull off
s = slide
b = bend string up to indicated pitch/fret
r = release bend to indicated string/fret
/ = slide up from infinity
\ = slide down into infinity

Chord legend:

G : [320033]
D : [xx0232]
A : [x0222x]
E : [022100]
C : [x3555x]
F : [133211]
B : [x2444x]
F/A : [x03211]

Here is part of the middle section. I put the time down so you
can figure out where I am.

1:11 1:17 1:23
E~ A B B G~ D E E E~ A B B G~ D E E A~

1:26 1:29 1:32 1:35 1:38
C G C G A~ C G C G D E D E C F/A C F/A

1:41 1:47
D B D B D B D B E~

[Guitar and effects for about 1:00]

Then there are a few E and D chords:

2:55 2:58 3:01 3:04
E D E D

G
e:—————————————————|
B:——–8-9\——8-9\——8-9-8——————|
G:o—–7———7———7——-9-8-7———–o|
D:o—9———9———9—————9-7-6~~—o|
A:—————————————————|
E:—————————————————|

There is another part in here but I just can’t figure it out. It
sounds like the previous pattern but played higher up and with some
hammer-ons and pull-offs.

e:————————————————————–|
B:————————————————————–|
G:o—–5-6-7\—–5-6-7\—-5-6-7-6-5————————-o|
D:o—7———-7———7————7-6-5——————o|
A:——————————————–7-6~————–|
E:————————————————————–|

e:————————————————————–|
B:——————————–5–8–5———————–|

D:o—7———-7———7———————7~————o|
A:————————————————————–|
E:————————————————————–|

Stop and start E with drum fills:

e:———————————————————–|
B:———————————————————–|
G:o—-9–9—–9–9——–9–9—–9–9——————-o|
D:o—-9–9—–9–9——–9–9—–9–9——————-o|

E:–0——–0——–0–0——–0——–0—————–|
