Bartender And The Thief Tab

Stereophonics - The Bartender And The Thief
Tabbed By Richard Pugh

One of their best live songs. Me and my brother cover this song in out band, and this is 
we play it:

DROP D, it does say so at the start of the first bar.

I made some minor changes after rediscovering this tab after several years, though I'm 
sure why people think it sounds very wrong, either they're not playing in drop D, or ... ?

Key:
x = Muted strings
~ = Let ring/ vibrato in the solo (and where it sounds good)
/ = Slide up to...
\ = Slide down to...

"-"s are used only to make the tab seem clear, they are used for timing only, nothing else.

This is how i play it, it sounds ace, and is pretty much 100% accurate i think.

Info. from stereobase.co.uk:

Wah pedal - Crybaby Wah
Distortion/Overdrive - Either a Boss BD-2 (which i have and use) or a Marshall Guvnor

Thanks and enjoy.
