Palm Trees, Helicopters, and Gasoline
By: Joe Bonamassa
Transcribed by: Brennan Lentz

*Tuning (VERY IMPORTANT):

from bottom to top, D A D D G D
I am confident this tuning is right. I can play the whole song in it just fine and it
great. However, take it with a grain of salt because I am only basing this off the You And
recording. I don't have any videos, any live recordings, etc. and I have never seen him 
it, so this is just my ear doing the transcribing.

*Listen for strumming patterns. I purposely didn't write every
single open string note in, but you can tell by listening that
there are always open strings ringing (for example, in this
opening passage). Just listen for the pattern and the tab will
give you the actual notes. Since the song is so percussive it
is nearly impossible to transcribe everything, but I guarantee
the accuracy of this tab. However, if there are any places you
disagree with, please email me at Vaughanabe13@aol.com so I can
revise it. Thanks and enjoy!
