Tuning: This is a STANDARD tuning version


INTRO:
"Sidewalk blind, an old tin cup,
Lookin down I can't look up
Long gone ain't comin back
It's later than I want it to be
And long cold nights without much sleep
Miss you babe

SOLO!
Note: Joe Satriani is using an octave pedal here, but I don't know whether he's playing
the lower octave and combining it with an octave higher on the pedal, or playing the
solo on the higher octave and combining the pedal at an octave lower...or maybe he's 
doing something else and I'm just wrong :/ haha. But I figured this out by ear to sound 
like the
same effect as the solo if you blend it with an octave down:

Ahhh when I think about you

Oh I fall down on my knees and beg you, I beg you

Thanks; looking at other tabs it seems as though Joe Satriani plays 1/2 step down. There is another tab for this song written in 1/2 step down but the solo is a little different than what I came up with.

But if you'd rather stay in standard then this is the tab for you. It makes the solo visually easier in my opinion...

Since I'm not an avid listener of Chickenfoot or Satch, I didn't even think about what tuning he usually plays in, shoot...I just thought this song and solo were so wonderful that I had to tab it right away for the world to enjoy and learn.

Enjoy
