/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
//Machine Head - Message In A Bottle (The Police Cover)//
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

They play it in the same key as the origonal but tune down so i put the tab in C# so you 
have to tune down your 6th string to play other machine head stuff

All clean stuf has chorus and delay and all the distorted stuff uses the 5150 so its 
thick distortion
