Red Lenses: Tablature

By Jimmy Pena (jimmy@walrus.com)

Excerpted from Fretplay.

This tab is a royal mess. It was a real pain to do, and I hope you appreciate it. This song isn’t so popular, so why the hell did I tab it? The key is E, switching to Ab for the keyboard interludes.

| = not a standard bar line; just used to separate music
~ = vibrato or held note
/ = slide up from infinity
\ = slide down into infinity
o \_
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.

Chord legend:

C#m7 : [9/11/9999]
F# : [244322]
F#7sus4 : [242422]
F#7(AddB) : [x44300]
E : [022100]
