Black Hole Sun Tab

   
Uhh, just a little opener to this Tab, or correctional Tab, 
if you will, to all the incorrect ones posted. To play this
song correctly, you must be tuned 1 half step down. Most of
you know it, but, for anyone knew to it, it is, 

             LOW to HIGH (Eb-Ab-Db-Gb-Bb-Eb)
The song is tuned that way, but for time purposes, we'll
leave the begginings to each stave the regular way.
Alright, let's get to it-

Now, essentially, if you follow the other tabs after this,
they are correct. But, I'd test them first.

Solo-
For this, I can't really say what it is, becuase I'm quite
frankly too lazy to sit down and transcribe this. But, as
a bit of help, if you want to do what I do, when I perform
this, I really just improvise in E minor. It adds to the 
darkness of the song, and you can shift into other E 
scales if needed. I mostly use E minor Pentatonic, myself,
because of the ease of finding it on the fretboard. There
are several places you can slide around in to add to it.
Throw in accent notes along the way, not normally found 
in the scale, too, for good measure. If you really want 
to sound like Kim, use effects similar to his, like some
kind of chorus, reverb, dist., and wah. He uses a strange
effect that causes the guitar to ahve a bit of a warbling
sound. If you just pick fast, and rock the wah quickly,
you'll sound close enough.

Thanks, and Good Luck.
