****************************************************
ELECTRIC TEARS--BUCKETHEAD

Off of Electric Tears (2002)

Tabbed by AGiantRobot
****************************************************

TUNING: Half-Step Down
120 BPM

Riff 1 (Main Riff)-For this riff, to recreate the echo sound in this song, you can play
Tears with harmonics. There is an alternate way to play it without harmonics, though,
you could probably play if you have the same echo-effect Brian uses on this song. These 
steady quarter notes, but the last note in each riff is held for 8 beats.

Harmonic Way:

eb---------------------------|
Bb-----------------------7*--|
Gb---------------12*--7*-----|
Db---------------------------|
Ab------------7*-------------|
Eb----12*--7*----------------|

Not so sure of the 3rd note, it was as close as I could get...

Regular Way:

eb----------------------14-|
Bb-------------------15----|
Gb---------------12--------|
Db-----------16------------|
Ab-------14----------------|
Eb---12--------------------|

Play either way 4 times.

Then...

Riff 2

Harmonic Way:

eb----------------------|
Bb-----------------12*--|
Gb------------12*-------|
Db-------12*------------|
Ab----------------------|
Eb---7*-----------------|

Regular Way:

eb-------------------|
Bb---------------12--|
Gb-----------12------|
Db-------12----------|
Ab---15--------------|
Eb-------------------|

Play that riff 1 time...

Then:

Riff 1-2x}
          -Play this set 2x
Riff 2-1x}

Then play Riff 3 (Around here Brian stops using harmonics): (around 1:43)

eb--------------------------------|
Bb--12----------------12----------|
Gb-----12--11------------12--11---|
Db-------------14--------------12-|
Ab--10----------------10----------|
Eb--------------------------------|
                                       Play all of this 4x
eb--(0)----------|
Bb---------------|
Gb-----12--------|
Db--------12-----|
Ab-----------10--|
Eb-----10--------|

NOTE: The open high e string near the end is very faint, and only played the first time.
before the 4th repeat, Buckethead plays just the first 4 notes in the top bar.

Then:

eb------------------|
Bb------------------|
Gb------------------|
Db-----------9--12--|
Ab-------10---------|
Eb---10-------------|

At around 2:55 :

Riff 3: Play 2x

Then, at 3:27, there's a variation on Riff 1 (call it "Riff 4"):

eb-----------------------------------------|
Bb-----------------------------------------|
Gb-----------------------------------------|
Db-----------16--12--14--16----------------|
Ab-------14--------------------------(14)--|
Eb---12--------------------------12--------|

At 3:43, a really tough riff is played:

Eb---0--

=p

Then at 3:50, played a little faster than usual:

eb---------------10--------------|
Bb-----------12------------------|
Gb-------12----------------------|   Play 2x
Db---10--------------------------|
Ab-------------------------------|
Eb-----------------------0-------|

At 4:07 or so:

eb--10-----------10--------------10-------------|
Bb----------------------------------------------|
Gb----12--11--------12--11-----------12--11-----|
Db------------12------------13---------------12-|
Ab----------------------------------------------|
Eb--0------------0----------------0-------------|

Then:

eb----------------------------------|
Bb------------------9-----------9---|
Gb---------------9--------------9---|
Db-----------12-----------------12--|
Ab-------12---------------------12--|
Eb---10-------------------------10--|


I haven't got the solo YET, but the background is the previous chord, strummed 8 times.
play Riff 3 2 times. Solo to come...

KEY:

( )=Ghost Note
 * =Harmonic

And THE ONLY site that has permission to post this is ultimate-guitar.com. If anyone
it anywhere else, tell me. The site that steals this has a nice little lawsuit coming.

That's about it, anyway...enjoy. This is my first tab, so please rate/comment!

"Then play Riff 3 (Around here Brian stops using harmonics): (around 1:43)"

Very good tab, but the tab by "Martin Wong" sounds far better.
