Lessons: Tablature

By Jimmy Pena (jimmy@walrus.com)

Excerpted from Fretplay.

This song is in the key of A. It switches to E for the chorus.
The solo is incomplete and may have some mistakes in it.

| = not a standard bar line; just used to separate music
~ = vibrato or held 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
[5] = artificial harmonic (use thumb to follow through the pick attack)
o \_
o / repeat sign (always look for these!)
