How A Helicopter Sounds Tab

Artist: The City on Film
Track: How a Helicopter Sounds
Album(s): I'd rather be wine drunk, In formal introduction, Live at Schuba's
Tabber: Andrew Biles

Quite possibly my favourite track from The City on Film (that's been released so far).
From the 'Live at Schuba's' set I gather that the muting at the beginning gave him the
inspiration for the title, but I'm not 100% on that.  Anyway, on we go, it's laid out
in the correct order but you're going to have to work out the amount of times each
section is played.  The solo part is there more as a guide on what he plays, I've not
put the exact playing of it as it's quite obvious when the changes are made when playing
it, although the double stop part probably isn't played as much as indicated.
