Friends Tab

   
Song:       Friends
Artist:     Joe Satriani
From:       The Extremist (and Live In San Fracisco DVD)
Tabbed by:  Nathan Scully (esthena555666@yahoo.co.uk)

I'll just add that I can't download any attachments that anyone sends to
my yahoo e-mail address because every attachment seems to have some virus
on it. So if anyone sends me attachments, then make sure they are virus free
and send them as .doc or .txt files or something - not those weird .p**
files (the **'s just mean i can't remember the file extention exactly)
and lets see if that will work.
Thanks,
Nathan

[END OF SONG]


Note 1: Live, Joe holds this note until the next note, but on the studio album,
	Joe holds the note until the end of Riff 5, and another guitar plays
	the next few notes. This is also where the last half of Riff 1 is played.

Note 2: This pick slide is played by another guitar underneath note 17.
	This may be the guitar that played up until the 20b22 bend (Note 1).
	Live, Joe does the pick slide by simply not holding note 17 for very long.

Note 3: These two connected bars are two guitars. As one guitar stops (the top bar),
	the other guitar starts (the bottom bar). Live, Joe plays the top bar until
	the '7 7' bit, then plays the bottom bar, ignoring the '5 6' of the top bar.


Notation Key:

h  =  hammer on		b  =  bend
p  =  pull off		r  =  release bend
/  =  slide up		x  =  muted string
\  =  slide down	x\ =  pick slide
~  =  hold note		Also, / and \ can mean T.Bar if stated.
