@SONG: * DROWNING
(tabbed by randell@heinous.music.uiowa.edu,
 and Paul Hutchinson )

(intro): |G   Fadd9|  x8

There are two rhythm guitars here. A clean electric (mixed left) strums 
chords throughout the song. Note that Fadd9 is played as 1x3213 (playing the
bass string with your thumb). An acoustic (mixed right) is played with a capo
on the fifth fret - to convert the chords:
 G becomes D, Fadd9 => Cadd9 (x32033), Am => Em, C => G, F => C, D => A

There are also two lead guitars in this song, which play the solo and the 
links between the verses. They play power chords for the Am-C... things.
If you only have one lead guitarist in your band, you can loosely approximate
both guitar parts with a pitch shifter by playing the right channel guitar 
(the one on top) with pitch shifter set to a perfect 4th (5 frets) above- use
your ears and change the bits which end up sounding particularly daft.
