Sweet Al George - Brad
>From the album "Interiors"

x mute
b bend
r release
h hammer on
p pull off
~ vibrato
/ slide up
\ slide down
^^ tremolo

The intro chord(s) are just variations of the G# chord:
|---------------------------------------|---------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------|---------------------------------------|
|8--------------------------------------|---------------------------------------|
|6---6----------------------------------|---------------------------------------|
|----6----------------------------------|---------------------------------------|
|----4----------------------------------|---------------------------------------|

This goese straight into the intro and verse riff:
G#5 A5 A#5   C#5 D#5
G#5 A5 A#5   D#5 C#5

Chorus:
C5
E5 G5

Then comes the interlude/bridge bit. This is repeated several times,
with the
first bar inprovised differently around the notes tabbed. I'm still not
sure
about the exact timing but here's my best guess at the moment:

 1    +    2    +    3    +    4    +    1    +    2    +    3    +    4

|3b--------3b------------------0--------|----------0----------------------------|
|5---------5-------------------5--------|-----2---------------------------------|
|------------------------------5--------|3--------------------------------------|
|---------------------------------------|---------------------------------------|


 1    +    2    +    3    +    4    +    1    +    2    +    3    +    4
+

|---------------------------------------|---------------------------------------|
(I just saw Brad play live with Ben Harper last night in Melbourne and
they
rocked. I'm pretty sure that the above is correct now.)


Then comes the guitar solo. I'm no soloist and I've never tried to tab a
solo
but here's my effort and you can get the general idea of it anyway.

 1    +    2    +    3    +    4    +    1    +    2    +    3    +    4

This last note rings on into the chorus where there is more soloing, but
I'll be
darned if I can hear it properly to work it out.

The song ends on:
G#5 A5 A#5

Lyrics:
The land of our forefathers was
A circle of love and trust
A golden smokin' victory
And who knew what the future would bring.

And now I'm at the end of the line
Trying it all the time
And you've got the baddest car
Yes you know who you are you know who you are

So give it to me

Come sweet emotion
Show us how to ride
Give us a wink
Hitch up the saddle
Ridin' off with pride
Shoot your gun
Theres no religion
This is supposed to be fun
Come sweet emotion
Come sweet emotion

Yeah yeah

A purple shootin' magazine
Another gift to the lovin' queen
Yes you got down 'cause you felt like
That was the way the old river run

You think you got it all made out
A hot shot was checkin' it out
Yes you've gone down to it
Down to it down to it once again

And I said my friends

Chorus

The greatest thing about the blues
Is baby you got nothin' to lose
Do you have to draw the line?

Come on

Chorus
