Watermelon in Easter Hay
By Frank Zappa

Tabbed by Bryce "Zombat" Homick

This is a favorite song of mine, this tab is based off the version from Joe's Garage.
I had to invent a notation, the b> - which means you bend the string before playing the note,
then dropping the bend down - it's like an opposite bend.
Combined with a bend, it sounds a lot like a whammy bar (which you can also do.)
Anyway, I'm still working on this song, so check back in the week for more - when Zappa starts mixin'
it up during the solo I find it hard to tab. We'll see what happens.
Either way, this is a little more extensive than the only other tab I can find for the song.

Correct tab so far i was considering putting one up myself but havent found the time to sit down and play it all through, what about the other 6minutes though, are you working on those? the 9 minute version is much better ;)

well I stopped because i saw an interview somewhere where he said that this was one of two or three songs that he didn't want reproduced, so i'm going to respect that, and try to tab some other incredible song of his

Is that so? I haven't seen that interview though, when was it taken, and in which connection?
