                Every Breath You Take - The Police
               -------------------------------------

                        Tabbed by Howard Wright
                        H.Wright@astro.cf.ac.uk
                         


Most of this is based on 'add9' chords, with a nice picking 
pattern too. Use the right hand palm to damp the strings and get 
a dry staccato feel.  Use a delay set to one quaver note length
so that the delay is echoing the picked note, but one note behind.



You can play this by fingering only three notes of the chord to start 
with and moving your first finger across to get the top note. I'll mark  
the notes to play with the first finger with a '*' then you can see how
this finger moves between strings to get the notes.

(You only need this for the first two shapes)

The basic chord progression is :

Intro :  Aadd9   F#madd9  Dadd9 D  Eadd9 E  Aadd9
Verse :  Aadd9   F#madd9  Dadd9 D  Eadd9 E  F#madd9
         Aadd9   F#madd9  Dadd9 D  Eadd9 E  Aadd9
