Here's Train Tracks; another amazing tune by Ian Moore. If you're gonna
play it live, there's something Ian does that I'd suggest. To make the
train sound, start slowly strumming your guitar, muted with your left hand,
up and down slowly. Use your wah-wah in time with your strumming, and
gradually increase speed. Get faster and faster until it's as fast as you
can go, and break into the intro lick. Ian flanges the train in the song,
but it's not really necessary.

		LIE - IAN MOORE

Heavy distortion with some good feedback. You've gotta have a wah for this
one: it just adds so much to the fills and solos. Timing is everything on
this tune, so listen to it a couple times first to get the groove down.

Intro riff (use wah :

e------------------------------------------------------------------------
B------------------------------------------------------------------------
G------------------------------------------------------------------------
D--------------------------------------------------------3-3-------------
A--5-3-0-5-3-0-5-3-0-5-3-0-5-3-0---5--0--3--4--5--5--3-0-----------------
E------------------------------------------------------------------------
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/moore_ian/train_tracks_crd.html ]
Main riff:
e-----------------------------------
B-----------------------------------
G-----------------------------------
D--------------------3--------------
A--5-----------3-0-----(5)----------   that (5) is the same one as the first
E-----3--4--5------3----------------   so when you repeat the riff, play it
once

Riff before solo:
e---------------------------------
B---------------------------------
G---------------------------------
D------------------------3--3----- play this three times then...
A--5--2--3--4--5--5--3-0----------
E---------------------------------

there's a short fill on the blues scale, the first note it F if you wanna
just listen to it and figure out what sounds best to you - or you could
just play the riff again.
then he plays the same riff but one octave up, so it's:

Riff before solo:
e---------------------------------
B------------------------6-6------
G--7--4--5--6--7--7--5------------
D----------------------7---------- play this four times... you can also
play it
A--------------------------------- on the B string, but this keeps your
scale to
E--------------------------------- solo on more visible and accessible

ok, now basically you just listen to the tue and you'll know where to play
what, but here's some of the other chords and progressions to help ya out...

G    F    A#   A
Yea, yea, yea, yea,
G                                       F
I'd like to take my time and watch them nail you to the tracks
(back to main riff, then...)
Whoa-whoa
G				  F
Suffer for the sacrifice the moment when you lost your sight
(main riff)
I hear that train a comin'...
