                    CYCLING TRIVIALITIES - Jose Gonzalez
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Tom Walter (with help from jamminjohn)
Email: walter dot tom at gmail dot com

Tuning: DADABE (Capo 2)

If you don't want to tune your G string up a tone, you can use CGCGAD, Capo 4. The 
tunings indicated at the beginning of each row reflect this old tuning which is how I 
originally tabbed it. Ignore those!

Thanks to jamminjohn for suggesting the alternate tuning which made a lot of
parts fit better. And the many other commenters for pointing out that it should really 
be tuned a tone higher to be authentic.

Played with triplets all the way through (as noted on 1st two bars)

The [1. [2. etc are alternate endings for the sections indicated.

Another great tab, EvilPuppetMaster!

I've got a minor comment about the First Chorus.
Here's another way of
playing the notes in the second part, the harmonies will be sligtly different.

I've also got a major, bold, comment ;-)

Can José be playing with a different tuning where he has tuned up the 4th
string instead of tuned it down? For example, could he be using
Tuning: C# G# C# G# A# D# (Capo on 3)

Then we'll
play an open 4th string through out the song.
For example, the first row of the tab would be
