                           PARIS TEXAS  -  by RY COODER
            ( from the soundtrack of the film of the same name by Wim Wenders)

I tabbed and recorded a MP3 demo (downloadable from the webpage here above) with
two acoustic slide guitars but if you alternate the two tab lines you can even play
the whole with only one guitar.
The two of them are tuned in OPEN D : from low to high : D - A - D - F# - A - D

Legend :
/ : slide up
\ : slide down
 : slide rapidly to and fro around the fret

All the notes of the second guitar are played with the slide bar, so are the ones
played with the first except where indicated.
Where the slide bar is used , play just above the numbered fret.
