Playing With Pink Noise Tab

Ok this is my first tab, which could be a bad thing...
But i have noticed that there are virtually no Kaki King tabs out there, probably
because of her unorthodox style of tunings and percussion.  I have tried very hard
by watching the music video of this song to come up with the tab for it.  I can't
figure it all out by myself, but hopefully this can be a stepping stone and one,
or even several more tabbers can build on this to create a final version of the
entire song that everyone can play... after all that's what it's about right?
Just experiment with this and have fun with it... and please send me feedback
or make corrections, and let's see if we can get more Kaki King tabs on the net!

If anyone wants to see the video it is on the website www.kakiking.com... You definitely
have to see the video or at least hear the song a million times before attempting to
understand what i'm trying to do here.  She holds her guitar with her fretting hand over
top of the neck with her fingers pointing downwards, and then knocks on the guitar just
above where the neck meets the body.  Seriously, check out the video... the song and the
vid are very good


'Tuning:  Something open.... I use open C, but i'm not sure if that's 100%  correct.

Open C is:    xxxx eCGCGC xxxx

Ok so here goes...i hope this will help


*K* means knock on the body, just above where the neck meets the body

Chorus(5): x2
This is where i don't know what she does.  She follows the same pattern as Chorus(3)
only she hits some harmonics and funny stuff along the way. She ends it and cuts back
into

Intro: x8 with a double knock(K*) (Pretty impressive)

Intro/verse(1): x1
Intro/verse(2): x1


Chorus(1): x2
Chorus(2): x1
Chorus(3): x1
Chorus(4): x1
Chorus(5): x1  with a little variation

Interlude: x2 second time with a little variation
This is very hard and i currently can't figure it out

Intro: x8
intro/verse(1): x1
intro/verse(2): x1

And end it on the final chord in the intro/verse(2).

So that's the best i can come up with.  I will try to figure it out as much as i can,
and try to update, but this is mostly to get all of your great tabbing minds to figure
out a tab for this amazing song.  Once again, rate it as crappy as u like, it's the only
Playing with Pink Noise tab out there that i've seen, and it's mostly a suggestion, but
i hope that others will build on this.  Check out the video and the song at
www.kakiking.com and feel free to email me, Dean, saugeen_shepard@hotmail.com.

Have fun.
