Blood on the Rooftops - Genesis (Guitar intro by Steve Hackett)

Tabbed by Paul Meekin (PMEEKIN@ESOC.BITNET) and Jeff Lo (JEFFREYLO@delphi.com).

The intro up until the vocals was done by Paul Meekin.  I have made a
few minor changes to Paul's intro.  The rest is my fault.  :)

During the verses, I have added a bass staff and some pedal notes below
that.  I don't play bass or bass pedals so I probably _really_ screwed
things up there.  I just liked the way the bass part sounded.

During the choruses, I just added my best approximation of some guitar
chords to substitue for the synth.  

Right after the choruses, there are a couple of measures with two or
three guitars, bass and keyboards weaving a pattern that I haven't
figured out yet.

Please send me any comments, corrections, etc.  so that I may continue
to improve upon this.

Hope you enjoy it!

Notes:
 
+  -This is meant to be a pause, musically a fermata. Use it to your own effect
 
H  -Hammer on/hammer off
 
A  -A sort of arpeggio but strummed downwards once with the thumb.
 
*  -The lower string is plucked very slightly earlier than the top one. Almost
     like a grace note.

() -An implied note.  Sometimes it is a string that is struck lightly by
    mistake, in other instances, it is the rest of the chord.
