Music bio: Greenbaum was born Nov. 20, 1942 in Maiden MA., and began playing area coffee 
while a student at Boston University. Greenbaum  relocated to the west coast in the mid 
forming Dr. West's Medice Show & Junk Band. Only after going solo did Norman Greenbaum
score a major hit in 1968 with 'Spirit in the Sky' selling some 2 million copies. A true 
hit wonder'.

Tuning   : Standard
*note    : For maximum results shorten the pick as close to your thumb and finger as 
so that both the pick AND the skin of your fingers strike the string. The results will be 
early ZZ Top type sound simular to 'Waitin' For The Bus' (through an over-driven tube amp
and possibly a fuzz-tone)
