Deep Purple - Anya

I just bought the Purplexed album (or more accurately, a ‘mix’) and found a couple cool 
tracks, this was one of them. I tried all the top tab sites and couldn’t find a tab anywhere.
I couldn’t believe it.

I sat down for about 15-30 minutes figuring out as much as I could. Then when I wrote this, 
I figured it out to a further extent.

I’m lead to believe there are two guitars playing most of the time because of the
use of power chords at the start of the big intro while the lead is playing.
They’ve been doing some studio work I guess.

Each section of the song has been labelled and the exact time that each part is heard on 
the CD is written down.

Some of the working out was just me improvising to something that sounds good with the 
track or comes pretty close to sounding like the song. This file is best viewed in the
Courier New font in size 9.

Intro
Clean Nylon Acoustic - Blackmore (Guitar 1 - Finger Picked)
CD: 0:00

This is quite a difficult intro to work out with the rapid hammer-ons and pull-offs. 
I could only manage to work out the guitar and not the organ in the background. This is 
the best I could get. I’m not sure of the timing so I’ve put in bar lines that separate 
each part for easier reading. So don’t think there is a pause after every bar.

I finger pick this part, but it can be done just as easily with a pick.

The guitar pauses here and the organ plays. at about 0:15, the next part starts.

At the end of that last bar he plays a bit of a scale but I can’t work that part out. 
Then comes the speed of light ending. I improvised this little part, because I’m not 
going to spend an hour working out a couple of the notes that I can’t get the pitch of.

“Big” Intro
Distorted Electric - Blackmore (Guitar 1 - Picked)
CD: 0:45

This part is a bit tricky to hear towards the end of the riff because of the drums, 
bass etc. but I think I’ve got it right. The organ is playing the same as the guitar at 
this point but with chords. Add your own pull-offs and slides. This is the way I play it.

The chords the guitar in the background is playing are written below the Tab. Let each 
note ring for as long as possible.

Fill #1
Distorted Electric - Blackmore (Guitar 1 - Picked)
CD: 1:32

The second and third time you play the 2 notes, the 5 is already bent to the 7th. The way 
to do these bends is to bend towards you. Note that the 3 doesn’t bend. This way you’re 
layering up the same pitch on both strings.

There is 1 guitar playing an ending solo and another holding the note. The note being
