Sea of Expanding Shapes by Buckethead
from Bermuda Triangle
tabbed by Aaron Anaya of ttabs.com

intro

e----6--------------9--------------11----------9--|
b----6--------------9--------------11----------9--|
g-------------------------------------------------|
d-------------------------------------------------|
a-------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------|

the main riff is just like the intro, only you slide from note to note and strum it...
you can mute the B string if you want. as for the solo, that's something that's not
to be messed with...it's a great solo and I love it. I came across this song while
I was just messing around one day....sounds just like it.

main riff

e----6-6-6-6/9-9-9-9-9/11-11-11-11-11-9-9-9-9-9-|
b----x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x--|

nice melodic part (I may be missing some notes to make the full chord)

e--6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|
b--6-6-6-6-6h7p6-|
g--6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|
d----------------|
a----------------|
e----------------|

a little ways into the song, he throws in a pull off from the 11th fret to the 10th
to tweak the sound a little.

OK, thats as far as I'm going right now... if I work any more out I'll update it, but
should give you
a good starter. For anyone who's gonna attempt to improvise here, the scale is an 
D# Pentatonic
(I
think that's it's name :S)

E---11--14--------------------------------------|

Good luck to everyone who tries it
