                   Big Country - Close Action

                      Album - The Crossing


From: maule_andy@hotmail.com

From the bands 1983 debut album, what follows is lead guitarist
Stuart Adamson's guitar part which is pretty much the feel and
sound of the whole song. I've included the E-bowed guitar
riff that accompanies the bridge section - it was omitted from
live performances of the song.The song is in A.


PM = palm mute - mute the strings with the palm of your hand
h  = hammer on
p  = pull off
/  = slide up
\  = slide down
t  = tap (with strumming hand)
