This is the definitive tablature of Bron-Yr-Aur
Tabbed by Robb Anagnostis (checked meticulously at slow speed) 10-01-2002

HINTS

p = pulloff
    (i.e. 3p0 =  play at 3rd fret then pulloff to open string)
    (4h5p4 = play at 4th fret, hammer-on to 5th fret, pulloff to 4th fret.
     Also called a trill)
s = slide
    (i.e. 5s7 =  play at 5th fret then slide to 7th fret)
x = rest beat
    (Be aware of the rest (x) at the end of many segments which allows
     for cleaner chord and position changes.)
* = placed over a beat that has a something explained to the right

This tab is SPOT ON except for the missing mention that it features a characteristic open-C6 tuning (C-A-C-G-C-E).

Haven't seen many tabs this good though so 5 stars from me.
