Gary Moore
"The Prophet"
From the album "Back To The Blues"

This is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. And it's really easy to play.
At some points the bendings are a little tricky, for example you have to bend a 3/4 note,
then release and bend again and so on. That's why I didn't tab it like "8b9". Especially
the last part is kinda impossible to tab. Well, anyway I tried. I didn't add the signs for
vibrato, because you have to do it on almost every note. Just listen to the song to figure
it out, it shouldn't be too hard.
By the way: There's a point where you have to bend the 23rd fret of the high E string. Well,
Gary plays a Les Paul which means that he only has 22 frets. So, if you want to break your
finger, bend the 22nd fret at that point, I'll bend the 23rd.


PS: This is my first tab, so please blah blah blah...

PPS: If you noticed this tab, please mail me and tell if you liked it and so on. But choose
a good headline so I don't delete it.


b = bend
r = release
h = hammer on
p = pull off
\ = slide down

But of course you know that.

Hey man nice job you pretty much nailed it but my one criticism would be on the third bar at 1:15 those three notes on the 14th fret on the d string sounds more to me like the 15th, 13th and 16th fret respectively? Maybe it's just me but the E just doesn't sound right to me.
