Hand On Heart (Fire Garden album)
Music by Steve Vai
Transcribed by Jason Richards(16 yrs of age), Reading, England, April '97
(HFPhoenix@aol.com)

This is the main theme of Hand On Heart which Steve variates several times in the piece.  I worked it out along the B string but feel free to use the notes on other strings to be more comfortable.  He worked hard on the tone of the guitar rather than on speed and dexterity.  To try to recreate his tone try some soft distortion with delay and reverb.

The bends steve does are to accurate notes.  So, to practise getting to the right pitch each time it is best to slide the notes to start with, rather that bend them.  I've included as much detail as possible to make it more accurate.

Notation:
=bend down
~=vibrato
h=hammer-on
p=pull off
/=slide up
*=pinched harmonic

    B       Hold Note        A          E    Hold note   F#m
