Thank you for purchasing this TAB. Below are some additional notes/references to help you...

The music is composed in 4 parts, represented in the Guitar Pro 6 version as 4 voices:

Black = Bass
Green = Melody and Chords
Purple = Percussion
Blue = Ornaments and key phrases

All unnecessary rests have been removed from the overall view, these can be viewed within the
4 individual voices (1-4 at the bottom of the GP window)

Due to the nature of the arrangement, I have introduced a brief description of each 'text'
symbol in the TAB that can't be explained through other means...

RH = Right hand harmonics picked with middle finger nail ('M') of picking hand. String touched
by index finger ('I')

Hole = 'M' nail connecting with inner soundhole below strings to produce a snare sound. As
part of, or just after a chord.

Body = A body slap with the fretting hand around the cutaway area (snare sound)

Pickstroke down/Pickstroke up symbols = Emphasised direction of 'M' as the strings are

strummed (no pick)

Scr = Finger nails quickly scratching the top, below the fretboard/body join. My guitar has a
'scratch board' covering this area to prevent wear. The scratch sound is achieved over time as
the softer areas of the wood are worn down.


With the exception of some of the above, most percussive hits in this arrangement act as either
bass drum (heel of picking hand) or snare drum (thumb hitting bass string/s) effects. In the
TAB the bass drums are indicated by 'X' symbols on the lowest available string. Snares are
indicated by the same symbol on a higher available string. Soundhole snares ('Hole') are on the
middle D string where possible. Emphasised hits and scratches are represented by numerous
stacked 'X' symbols.


There are a few technical things I'd like to mention here, as they help shape the arrangement
and crop up frequently throughout the song. When muted, all melody notes are muted in one of
three different ways:

1. The finger that picks the note comes straight back onto the string to kill it. All skin, no nail, as
subtle as possible (example bar 3 beat 1)

2. The finger fretting the note lifts off away from the fretboard whilst still touching the string, this
needs to be done quickly to avoid buzz (example bar 3 beat 3)
3. Regular old right hand muting


Three techniques again here:

1. Fingers that are already present on the string/s pick the chord in conjunction with a
percussion hit (usually thumb) (example bar 3 beat 2)

2. 'Claw attack!' - occasionally I need to achieve a percussion (snare) hit and a chord
simultaneously. In order to do this, sometimes I 'claw' the strings at exactly the same time as I
'slap' with my thumb (example bar 3 beat 4)

3. Regular old strumming (usually with back of the 'M' nail) (example bar 4 beat 2 )

Thanks and best of luck!
