PIGGY

I tabbed this because all the other versions I have seen have been wrong, this song has EVERYTHING except the drum tab.

keyboard note values

T = Triplet
R = Rest
W = Whole Note
H = Half Note
Q = Quarter Note
E = 8th Note
S = 16th Note


the first number represents in what octave to play in,
the second letter represents the note to play,
and the third letter represents how many counts each note gets

play 14 times 

(optional guitar riff)

you can work this riff in towards the end of the song, 
maybe on the bass's tenth time through the second chourus, 
but make sure that you don't end while this riff is still going.

KEYBOARD

[keyboard riff]

4BW-5AH-5GQ-5FQ-5GQ-5FbQ-5EE-5DbE

play this 6 times towards the end of the song, 
and then the keyboard will be the only instrument playing at the end, 
and it will play 2 more times through alone.
