Desert Rose Tab

   
DESERT ROSE

Eric Johnson  
From the 1990 album “Ah Via Musicom”. 

	p  - pull off
	h  - hammer on
	T  - use your thumb
     ~~  - sustained note or vibrato
      /  - slide up
      \  - slide down
      b  - bend to second note
   ?b?r? - bend to second note and return to first
      PH - pinch harmonic
     (?) - passing note

I haven't put in any precise timing so you'll have to listen to the CD. Usually 
if the notes are closer together they'll be faster but this is only a rough guide. 
It's hard to tell where there are hammer ons and pull offs are so you can decide 
for yourself. This tab is definitely correct. I worked the solos out using "pacemaker" 
for winamp to slow it down.
Enjoy!
