    Collateral Damage by Steve Morse
              off the Coast to Coast album

This song ins't that tough as far as Steve Morse's guitar work goes. There 
are a few tricky parts but I got most of it.
This is the intro, play it 2 times                          figure 1
e-------------------------------t-p-h--------------------t-p--h---------e

e---------------------------------|-------------------------------------e

This is the other cool tapping part, Steve and the bass mirror each other.
                                       figure 1b
e---------------------------------------------------|-------------------e
b--t-h-h-t-h-h--------------------------------------|-------------------b

a---------------9-4-7-9-4-5-7-2-5-7-2-3--^-^---^-^--|-------------------a
e---------------------------------------7-2-5-7-2-3-|-------------------e

Here the guitar hangs with the oper E and the bass does some stuff with 
touch harmonics
            bass touch harmonics
e-----------------------------------------------------------------------e
b                                                                       b
g                                                                       g
d                                                                       d
a                                                                       a
e-0~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~-e

Now the guitar gets to do some touch harmonics, on the album Steve does it 
so clean that you can hardly tell they are harmonics at all
* touch harmonics are made by fretting a note in first position and then 
while holding your pick with your middle and thumb fingers and hitting the 
note as a harmonic with you index finger in second position.
               b+r        /                          Guitar touch harmonics

Now the bass and guitar weave rhythems back and forth, its hard to explane
you will just have to listen to the track your self.

Now there is the sick walking bass line and the guitar holds the E for a 
while

this part is kind of like a bridge, so thats what weÕll call it
                                              Bridge

Thats everything except the guitar solo, which I know but I donÕt have the
