Subject: Re: Good Shepherd (Traditional) by Jefferson Airplane

o The following should help you get started.  It's what I transcribed
  from the record a while back; no guarantees of accuracy, etc.  In
  particular, I think the signature acoustic guitar riff (marked
  "intro" below, but really runs through the whole song) is played by
  two guitars, one or both of them in an open tuning.  I think the
  notes I have are right, but the voicings aren't.

o Also, I didn't tab the electric guitar lead part.  It's fairly easy
  to figure out and play.
