DANCING FOOL

tab by chris lawrence (mustang@islandnet.com)

* = harmonic   ~ = vibrato   b = bend   \ = slide  ^ = hammer-on

Paul and Gibby both handle the guitars on this song.
All of these tabs are approximate.

Intro Paul:

G---------------------------------------------------------------|
D--------------------14b~~~--14b~~~--14b~-14b~-14b~14~14b-(14r)-|

E---------------------------------------------------------------|

follow this with sludgy tremolo picked slides on the low E. then:

E------10--------10----------10----10----10~~-------10----10-----10-|
B--11b----11r~~-----b11~--11b---11b---11b--------11b---11b---11b----|

on the E chord (Gibby is panned farther right, Paul farther left).
