                   Big Country - Close Action

                      Album - The Crossing 


From: maule_andy@hotmail.com

From the bands 1983 debut album, what follows is lead guitarist 
Stuart Adamson's guitar part which is pretty much the feel and 
sound of the whole song. I've included the E-bowed guitar 
riff that accompanies the bridge section - it was omitted from  
live performances of the song.The song is in A.


PM = palm mute - mute the strings with the palm of your hand
h  = hammer on
p  = pull off
/  = slide up
\  = slide down
t  = tap (with strumming hand)
