Standard tuning

Comments: Actually it seems to be a little below standard tuning. I suggest
tuning to the song. This is based mostly on swing eights so all you have to
do is lock into the groove and swing away. Gene does have a few variations
here and there. For the life of me I can't understand where Rhy. Fig 7
comes from, it seems totally out of place in this tune (hell, on this album).


Key:
/    = slide up
\    = slide down
b    = bend (whole step)
b^   = bend (1/2 step)
b^^  = bend (1 1/2 steps)
pb   = pre-bend
r    = release-bend
t    = tap with righthand finger
h    = hammer-on
p    = pull-off
~    = Vibrato
*    = Natural Harmonic
#(#) = Trill
**   = Artificial Harmonic
x    = Dead notes (no pitch)
P.M. = Palm mute (- -> underneath indicates which notes)
(\)  = Dive w\bar
(/)  = Release w\bar
Tp   = Tap w\plectrum
