Rapture Tab

   
Song:  Rapture
Album:  Control
Corrections: beenwashed@yahoo.com

Standard tuning

I plugged in my cute little Danelectro Pastrami, used about mid level and about
a quad's worth of overdrive.  I would not doubt it if he used something else,
this is just what sounded like it, that I could get my hands on. 

Cb5-89xxxx
C5 -810xxxx

What a great song.  It took some patience to come up with this.
I watched David play this song, and most of the stuff he played was high on the
fret board (power chord like), so I figured this would be the best representation
of it that I could give, hope you enjoy.  Please send corrections, comments,
