Artist: Diamond Head
Song: Sweet and Innocent
Album: Lightning to the Nations (Released 09/01/81)
Lineup:
Sean Harris: Lead Vocals/Rhythm Guitar
Brian Tatler: Guitar
Colin Kimberley: Bass
Duncan Scott: Drums

Tabbed by: SethMegadefan
Email: sal2@mchsi.net

Tuning: Standard (EADGBE)

Note: This song is basically all done in triplets... please note that each - represents
one-sixth of each triplet, therefore: -- is one-third of a triplet, is two-thirds
of a triplet, and is one full triplet. This is a great song for beginners, because
there are no solos. It requires only one guitar player, so for all you

three-piece bands out there, this is a real treat.

Hey. The main riff posted here is missing a few notes - the correct way to play it is to add a 0h5h7 on the A string at the end of the notes already listed in each bar. I can't make any fancy graphics, but if you listen to the song it's obvious that the main riff has more notes than is tabbed here. There's also sort of a pre-verse key change which I'm working on right now, should be done soon... ;)

You also need to remove the last E note on the A string at the end of the bar - that would be the last hammered-on note.
