                             Aqualung (live) - Jethro Tull
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:  Matthew Nesbitt
Email:nesbitt.matt@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

This is Jethro Tull's live version of Aqualung from 1977 (just the solo though).  It's 
to find the video on the internet if you don't already have it.

It's not 100% accurate (probably about 99%) - those hammer-ons and pull-offs are hard to 
 I tried to get the timing pretty close too.

A also tabbed their studio version of Aqualung if anyone cares; it's version 2 here on UG.

Barre palm mutes some of the notes, but it shouldn't be hard to figure out how to do it 
once you listen to the song.


 /  slide up
 \  slide down
 h  hammer-on
 p  pull-off

There it is.  Hopefully this helped you with learning to play this song.  I love this 
of Aqualung.  Martin Barre is one of my favorite guitarists.
