Song:           Sharks Can't Sleep
Album:          The Burdens Of Being Upright
Written By:     Tracy Bonham
Performer:      Tracy Bonham
Transcibed By:  Gina Martinelli
Typed By:       Peter C. Marinari (krisis@erols.com)



This is a pretty accurate version of the song.  It works well on
acoustic guitar, and I don't know what sorts of effects to use on an
electric (other than it seems distorted during the chorus).  It was
figured out by the marvelous Gina Martinelli after having front row
seats for a Tracy Bonham concert (she was watching Tracy's hands very
closely).



Note: In the verses you should hold the chord while playing the single
strings (in other words, don't just do one string at a time).  This will
produce the correct ringing sound.  I didn't bother to tab out the
verses in this version of the file, if you'd prefer to play them from
tab go get the .tab version of the file (duh).  The following is the
pattern the verses always follow:
