Telstar Tab

The Tornados - Telstar
From The Album: Play Telstar and Other Great Hits
Tabbed By: John Earp  spydrmann2000@yahoo.com

Hello everyone, Telstar is a wonderful song and I always wanted to play the keyboard piece
on guitar.  There wasn't a tab for it anywhere so I decided to make a tab for it.  Enjoy.
The song must be listened to in order to get the timing, especially those parts for the
guitar.

To get the sound, I used a Squire Jagmaster strat style guitar with bridge pickup and 
slight distortion with lots of reverb and flanger.  A clean sound with reverb and flanger
is probably just as good.

This part is actually a guitar.  I am probably wrong about this part.

This part is also a guitar.  Once again probably wrong.

As you can see this last part is the same but played on the two highest strings as the 
song shifts to higher notes, pitch may not be exact but it should sound okay.  If this
sounds funny, just play the first main melody again (thats how I prefer to play it)
If you can transcribe the main melody so it is played one octave up, that should work.
