Artist: The Chameleons
Song: Monkeyland
Album: Script of the bridge
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Klaus Hurskainen
Email: klaus.hurskainen@elisanet.fi

Tuning: F#BEAC#F# (a whole step higher than normal)

NOTE: I tabbed this by listening to the 'Radio 1 Evening Show Sessions'
-album, where there's a live version of Monkeyland. Generally on the live versions you 
hear much more clear what's going on with the guitars.
On 'Script of the bridge' though, the song starts off a bit different, fading in and all 
but otherwise it's the same.

On live versions of the song, Reg starts the song of by playing this thing
on the sixth string e. He hits the string with the edge of his pick while
muting the string with his fretting hand and then slowly and just slightly
changes the place where he's hitting, going down and up the string
horizontally. Listen to a live version to get the idea.
