Closer to the Heart: Tablature

By Jimmy Pena (jimmy@walrus.com)

Excerpted from Fretplay.

This song has been tabbed by so many people that it would be a
waste to name them all. It has also appeared (in whole and in part) in
several guitar magazines. The key is A, but it switches to D for the
solo. Standard tuning [EADGBe] (low to high). The guitars during the
verses are doubled, electric and acoustic.

| = 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
o \_
o / repeat sign (always look for these!)

Chord legend:

A : [xx7765]
G : [xx5543]
D : [xx0232]
A5 : [x022xx]
