Blue Orchid Tab

   
 -----------------------------------
| Blue Orchid		            |
| Words and Music by Jack White     |

| Tabbed by Ethan Love              |
 -----------------------------------

Tuned slightly sharp.

|   p: Pull off of note					
|   b: Bend note					
|   r: Release bent note				
|   /: Slide to note					
|   ~: Vibrato						
|  (): Ghost note					
|8/8v: Harmonic doubling with lower octave (Whammy pedal)
|  8~: Unspecific octave shifting (Whammy pedal)	

Two guitars play in semi-unison, both of them digitally combined with their lower octave.
I have simplified them into one guitar part.

Without a digital octave manipulator like the Whammy pedal, it is your best bet to play full 5th chords.

VERSE 3:
You were given a flower
But I guess there was just no pleasin' you
Your lip tastes sour
But you think that it's just me teasin' you

VERSE 1

CHORUS:
Get behind me
Get behind me now, anyway
Get behind me
Get behind me now, anyway


Note: Although Jack White plays the second chorus the following way live, one could also push the
Whammy pedal forward to the high octave doubling setting, and play the riff from the first chorus.
