Cygnus X-1: The Voyage: Tablature
By Jimmy Pena (email@example.com)
Excerpted from Fretplay.
This is not wholly original. The solo was taken from a previous
version of the tab, done by Blake Butterworth (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The rest of it appears similar, but that’s just because it was mostly done
right the first time. I have included it here because it appears to be
correct, and my purpose is to merge all previous versions to make the most
comprehensive and correct tab, not necessarily an original version.
Standard tuning [EADGBe] (low to high). The key is C.
| = 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 / repeat sign (always look for these!)
[x35553] = fret box; this is a C chord – this is the same as standard
tablature, only turned on its side. Tilt your head clockwise to read.
+-3-+ = this is a triplet indicator
A : [x0222x]
