        THE CHORDS.....

                EADGBE
        Em      022000
        Em/C#   x4x000
        D/F#    2x023x  (use I, M, and R)
        Dm/F    1x023x  (same)
        Esus    022200
        Am7     x02010
        G/B     x20033
        Cm6     x3x24x  (M, I, P)

        PERFORMANCE NOTES:

        In that fourth "bar" before the
"Real Intro" (the one with the hammer-
on's), anchor your pinky on the G-string
and your middle finger on the B string
before you start the series of notes...use
the index finger to hammer on.

        At each phrase, "Be in Time", let
those arpeggio notes really ring (I use
my pinky and index fingers to hold the
notes)...I know on the record those upper
three notes are an octave higher, but
since Phil was using double-tracking, I
can't find a suitable fingering to fit
those high notes in...sorry.
        
        For those slides in the intro,
I use my pinky and ring finger, so that
the other two are free to form the chords
faster...this part is tricky at first, but it
does get easier.

        Make sure you tune that
guitar down a full step...it just won't
sound the same without it.

        Thus endeth the tabbing.

        Any requests, anyone?

        With boggled eyes and
        tired fingers....

        Jacob
