                         ALIVE - PEARL JAM

Tabbed by Visscher@alg.frg.eur.nl

Notation Legend:
\:  slide down
h:  hammer on
p:  pull off
NH: natural harmonics
~~: vibrate
+:  represents the beat
Note: the bass line during chorus and solo changes every time. In this tab,
I only give the basic bass line. Try using different notes here and there,
change the length of notes etc. This tab gives you a good starting point.
