Father of Mine
by Everclear

Legend:
> = slide
\ = indefinite slide
/ = rhythm slash
() = notes inside parentheses are not played every time
b9-r = prebend note, pick, then release bend
h9 = hammer on
17b = pick and bend

All bends are 1 whole step

! -  +  -
1 e and ah...

I'm pretty sure this is at least 90% correct

Tuning: down 1/2 step (or, more accurately, down 1/4 step)

That's the first verse.
When you get to the slides, it switches to this:

1st chorus has no slides.

That's it for the rhythm part. The rest is just fills and a solo.

What does "1 e and ah" mean? That's standard sixteenth note terminology. "1" is the downbeat, "and" is the upbeat, "e" and "ah" are the notes in-between. So the ! is the downbeat, the + is the upbeat, and the - is between. I did this to shorten the measures that only have downbeats or down- and upbeats so I could conserve space.

I was about to write an angry comment to a music-illiterate before I saw you answered him nicely.

Sooooo..... I guess I won't.

Great Tab!!!
