Subject: TAB: Mr. Brownstone (GnR)

This is my first tab post (hopefully it'll go through.
If not, don't mail to the address above (its not mine,
a friend is letting me use his account for today).  I'm
at pete@pr.erau.edu.  I got some help fromo the book from 
Hal Leonard publishing for the rhythm part during the solo.

Mr. Brownstone - Guns N Roses
-----------------------------
This is a transcription to Mr. Brownstone by Guns N' Roses.  It is how I
play it on my acoustic, but it's just like the electric version minus wah
wah.  Playing acoustic tunes on one guitar doesn't lend well to playing
the solo (from thick, full sound to sparse sound doesn't go so well).  For
the first half of the solo, I play the rhythm part.  The second half of the
solo is very full sounding; enough so that you can play it and it won't
sound empty coming off the rhythm.  A note with a lower case b over it
means to bend the note up a half step; a note with an upper case B over
it means to bend the note a full step.  A sequence like this 6b7d6 means
play the 6th fret, bend up 1/2 step to 7th, the release the bend to 6th.
During the solo you'll see stuff like this:  b d
                                             6 6
This means the same thing as 6b7d6 (I wanted to keep the solo on 80 cols)
If I made errors, let me know.
