Subject: TAB: "Cuckoo Cocoon"   by  'Genesis'

                      "  Cuckoo  Cocoon "
                           by Genesis
              From ' The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway '

TABLATURE:  By Jeff Nicolaus (jnicolaus@msn.com) Sept 3, 1997.

TUNING: Standard

ARRANGEMENT:  Taken off studio version. The guitars are mellow and
        effects laden. The intro and regular verse seem to have
        been recorded using a 'Travis' style of finger picking,
        where the thumb is alternating. This version is a little
        more syncopated and more to my liking.
              I will also include an 'optional' more aggressive
        style of picking for comparison.

        Time signature : 4/4
